Welcome back inside -- from Monty was on -- bear market with us tonight said later scored fifty. This is the first album that I had to do there's entirely from. Start to finish you know when I'm writing now is for the other bands I'll start lyrical ideas and and a lot of times the other guys will use those to finish. Their own lyrics and I was feels better forcing her to write the wrong lyrics they get that. That's the sing them with more conviction but with the sound being at my my first time I just wanted to make it a very personal album and earlier -- You know I I rewrote them two or three times you know and and I think. You know -- them -- if I could rebuild go back to do the record again that fiery right field them but. You know it was definitely a good challenge Foreman. I heard it also helped you to gain respect for some of the veteran writers out there ranging from Bob Dylan to Paul Simon and stuff like I mean there's. Just just to see how. How well these people rightly or some have written -- -- -- just blows my mind especially when you hear guys like Bob Dylan would just right amount of practice. -- thought he he would sit there and spend more than five minutes reading some winners may be. Beautiful brilliant leader so it's that's a talent just like anything else having the more you work on it the better you you flow and it. Now vocal lead this is your first time as lead vocalist and I think some fans might be a little surprised to learn. That it took you awhile to gain that confidence how did you grow your confidence to take over the lead vocal rule. What first I I knew I didn't have to have much confidence going into the studio with my friends and sing and I was a nervous about singing in front of them I think once I. Delivered the performances I've realized that I could that I can do this you know I -- felt like I was getting better every day that I practice singing. And by the time the whole mix of the record was done it was time to do shows. I felt like I had enough confidence. With my advocacy go ahead and and and -- that frontman -- is feared to be her.
