Q: What was the biggest inspiration for this album?
A: Different things really. The album is an insight into around 5 years of my life and I think in some ways my entire life! There’s a lot about previous relationships, friendships, experiences I’ve had and stories I’ve created from people watching which I love to do. It will be different with the next album, I’m sure.
Q: In terms of songwriting, do you typically write with the live aspect in mind? Maybe give us a brief overview of the writing process for this album.
A: My writing process is different each time I write. Sometimes I’ll start off with a beat and build a track up roughly from there then start singing over what I’ve created. Other times I’ll have a lyric in mind, start playing some chords and begin playing around with those words. Usually with an uptempo song I’ll imagine playing it live and try and create something that I think will take the audience on a journey with tension and builds etc.. other times I will be so in the zone of writing that all I am focused on is the moment.
Q: What is one of your favorite lyrics that you’ve written?
A: Into me, like bullets through a screen, my heart is no machine.
