"It’s funny, because when I first went to move out here, I thought, “Okay, I’m going to come out here and song-write for people, too,” because I just signed a publishing deal to write songs for other people as well, and I just kind of found that whole scene to be not my vibe at all. But there is a ton of awesome creative people out here. And this album was funny, because I had my little studio and I pretty much engineered 90% of my album. I’d just sit in my room and work on these songs all day, and it was actually the first time I’d ever done that. But I’d sit and I’d jam with my buddies, and we’d send the record to Carlos who’s in Austin, and I don’t know, there was no real rhyme or reason, but there’s definitely creative energy out here for sure"
