I love how prolific having so much gear around can allow you to be.It’s generally 95% music first, as far as music versus lyrics.
Generally, I’ll write the main overlying vocal hook with something else, like a synth.I’ll get a new piece of gear, but I’ll have to write a song so that I can run something through [it].So everything kind of fuels the fire in its own way.It’s amazing how things can just pop out of nowhere.I love being in the right place at the right time to capture that. That served as a lot of the inspiration, just having the main piano patch pulled up all the time. I find myself creating this shell of a song musically, and I need this filler inside, sounds that compliment everything else in a beautiful way. I think I’ve made a good step forward in terms of layering all these different bits and pieces of sounds to create this new record, as it stands apart from previous records I’ve done.
