Though we went to Cancun for many reasons… the main one was to write music. After 2+ years of touring, it was time to start writing material. Writing isn’t as easy as it looks. For example, I can’t write at anytime I please. There is no on and off switch. No easy button. No “pull my finger” and see what happens. Writing is about being inspired. I could sit in my apartment for weeks and write songs. They might turn out okay… but sometimes you just need to get out of your element. You need to leave the nest and explore something unknown yet familiar. We packed our computers, our speakers, our instruments, and our minds and threw them over our shoulder as we prepared for the trip of a lifetime. Don’t get me wrong, we still got into some trouble, snorkeled, went to the spa, etc… but we did spend a huge chunk of our time digging into some songs. This record is all about pushing our boundaries. We feel like we have so much to prove as artists and we are working extra hard to create something not only good, but unique and special. We might be crossing a few lines and throwing a few rule books away, but at least in the end I know we’re going to have an album that we’re proud of. What is life if you don’t take a few risks. Art comes from under your skin. This album is going to be US. US recorded onto tracks to be released to the world. Whether it was writing songs at 3 am on the beach, sketching out lyrics on a hammock, or recording piano parts in our makeshift studio, we were writing with our hearts. There were no music videos playing around us, no knobs around us adjusting the volume of the radio, and no one telling us what to do or what to write. It was just us. 3 artists. 1 family. Cancun, Mexico. Hope you all enjoy the photos that were shot of us as the writing process was going down. I’ll be posting more soon, and there is a surprise coming very, very soon. Video updates coming soon!
