Your debut record ‘People Person’,is out, tell us more about it.
We began recorded the album a few years ago at Breakglass Studios in MTL with Jace Lasek, he’s an amazing dude to work with and we had a great time doing so. The songs are mix of tracks that I wrote in the last 5 years. There are a lot of different types of songs on this album, some heavier guitar driven tracks, some that are sample heavy, some that are rhodes based. Despite their differences, I find that the album flows well and makes for a dynamic listening experience. The name people person is an ironic title, as most of the writing and prepro for this album was done by me in my room solo. Since Liam and I began making albums 10 years ago under different monachers, we have always titled albums wit the P-P alliteration.
