It's the eve of the release for More Or Less; How do you feel?
I feel good. Just chill really. Ready to advance and to give my people something new.
How did you decide on the title?
It came from a conversation with a friend. We were talking about life, and I said "life is more or less what you make it." That just stuck with me. It described the period in my life perfectly.
The sound of this record is different from Proving You Wrong Since '88, which had a really fun, cool kid retro vibe. More Or Less is sleeker, a little more mature. Natural growth or strategically planned?
Just natural growth really. Nothing was planned. It was all organic. I just went in the studio and did what felt true to me.
Which song are you most looking forward to performing live? Why?
Probably LALA. Ready to see what the crowd does with that song.
What's one thing you hope people take away from your music?
Mostly the positive energy that it comes with.
Any videos in the works?
Not yet, we'll see what the most talked about tracks are and just go from there.
Are there any upcoming shows** that our readers need to know about?
Definitely. January 21st at the Hi-Tone Cafe in Memphis. Good times ahead.
