Most people would be familiar with you as the frontman of A Rocket To The Moon. What has been the biggest difference between playing in a band and doing more of a solo project as you are now?
It’s a little more honest. I can be myself. I don’t care about being this front man rockstar type that a lot of guys in bands want so badly. I just like being me and playing songs about my life.
Life stories. Tour stories. Honesty.
It’s been real positive so far. It’s really showing me who the true fans are and they are nothing but kind to me.
I’ve always had The Northern Wind as an idea in my iphone notes for if I ever went solo. I’ve always loved the heartbreakers and the cardinals. I think it’s an easier way for people to remember my name.
They were all fun. Too good was fun because I was different. Very raw. One take guitar and one take vocal. I wanted that one to feel as real and painful as I could.
I love playing anything from Petty to Ryan to whatever’s cool these days.
More touring and a hell of a lot more music.
Come see a show and check out the music!
