Tell us more about your debut album “Heavy Is The Head”….
It is our most comprehensive and combined effort to date as far as our influences and styles.
It recently hit #1 on the iTunes reggae charts.
We are extremely excited with the response.
Is there a link, lyrically speaking, between all the songs?
A lot of the lyrics revolve around internal struggle but we made a concentrated effort to tie in more positive themes on this record, although there is still plenty of darker content.
How do you usually write your lyrics?
It usually starts with a melody and picking words that fit with the syllabic flow.
Those first words usually come pretty easy. The rest of them can take a little longer.
I very rarely can flesh out a whole song lyrically in any one session but might have 2-3 strong melodies and accompanying lyrics that come very quickly.
When it was last time you wrote some verses?
I write something almost everyday. It usually starts with a melody.
What does music mean to you?
It is my life blood. It’s been my north star since I was old enough to listen to it.
I’m still discovering its true impact and meaning to me and I think I always will be. It’s a beautiful thing.
What inspired “Hey Now”?
We are all very full of opinions and have anger stemming from different political issues.
I wrote this song from the anger caused by the 2016 presidential election, amongst other things.
Do you remember the day you wrote “Dollar Saved”?
I don’t specifically remember the day I wrote this song but it is the oldest song on the record, it was written maybe 4 years ago.
The guys pushed to bring it back and I finally caved. Some songs bring me immediately back to the place where I wrote them. “Highs & Lows” is one of those.
I was sitting in the back of our trailer in a parking lot on the inlet in Jupiter, FL. I remember I was driving our tour bus through Virginia when I wrote the melody for “Leviathan”
Are you planning to be in tour soon?
We are nearly always on tour.
We have some big tour announcements coming soon for January & February 2018.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to wake up everyday ready to work on music and not have to worry about how to pay the bills too.
We are getting closer.
