Your latest single ‘Help Me’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting for this track?
The song comes from a very real place of when I was going through one of the hardest times in my life. It was a late addition to the album and really tells my story. The sound was something we focused on a lot; we wanted something dark, edgy, and powerful.
Where and when did you record/produce and who with?
We recorded this back in may of 2019 and it was produced by the super talented Joel Stouffer
How did you approach the songwriting for Help Me?
Help me was the very first person. It was really easy to write actually it pretty much just says everything that was on my mind at that moment.
How did the recording take place?
We actually recorded the whole song in the basement of my house. I built a home studio a while back so everything besides mix and master was done here.
What programs/instruments did you use?
This song was produced on ableton with the help of Joel Stouffer. This song was mainly digital instruments as we wanted a very lo-fi sound to it.
How did the concept for the Help Me video come about?
The video concept came to me very easily. I really wanted this desolate desperate feel and for that me and my team agreed to head out to the dessert in LA.
Where and when did you film and who did you work with?
We filmed in one day at the El mirage desert in California, just outside of LA. I worked with my incredible video guys who came on the trip from Toronto called Red Tip Productions. The director’s name is Dave Redman and he is an absolute genius.
What did you find most challenging and rewarding during the creation of the video?
The most challenging was the fact that I was sick and it was about 100 degrees fahrenheit out there so that was super hard. But after powering through that, when we wrapped up, I felt so happy that I pushed myself through it. Other than that it all went down pretty smoothe.
You have a new album coming out in a few months, what can we expect?
In my opinion, You can expect a little bit of everything from mental health to heart break. This album is special to me and I hope that everyone can relate to at least one of the records.
