Every once in a while it comes around: I record a new album and the “Behind the Songs” series resurfaces.
If you’re unfamiliar, for every song I record, I also make a video discussing the meaning behind the songs—a behind-the-scenes look at each song’s inspiration, nuances, studio feats, and creative rigors.
As the first song on New Northbound, Good Comet is the first feature from the new crop. Check out the video below to see what this song is all about, why I made some of the creative decisions that I did, and how the producer, Cary Samsel, made a big impact.
I always enjoyed hearing the tell-all stories from my favorite artists, discussing the little-known inspirations behind my very favorite songs. In an effort to bottle that magic, I sincerely hope you appreciate this peak behind the creative curtain.
Stay tuned for a new video for each song on New Northbound, as well as a couple singles that were recorded separately.
