Do you remember your very first show? Where was it & how many people were there?
The first show I ever played was with my high school band ‘City Limits’. We played an open mic night at a place called Executive Surf Club which we would go on to headline multiple times.
What’s the very first song you wrote?
A song called “Let Your Love Cast Away.” The song was about a girl I was in love with all through school named Whitley! Don’t think I ever got the time of day afterwards (laughs.)
What would you say is your favorite thing about being in the studio? Do you have a certain process or are you surprised by what usually happens once you are in there?
Just being able to create new art. It’s never a surprise but more of a thrill for a guy like me once I hear the product.
What’s one thing you do before you go on stage?
I’ve always listened to loud music before I go on. Usually “Little Miss Honky Tonk” by Brooks and Dunn.
When writing music, what’s your process? Do you ever get writer’s block?
It always starts with some sort of relative idea of where I am at the moment, whether that be musically or lyrically.
What has been the highlight of your career thus far?
Waking up today being able to realize I’ve lived another day doing what I can’t live without.
