Backstories - Episode 1: Paid Time Off

It's been a couple of weeks since the Paid Time Off EP dropped, and the response from all of you has been great. Thank you so much for the continued support!

As an add-on to the EP, I'm releasing weekly episodes of what I'm calling "Backstories". I'll be breaking down some of the aspects, stories and insights around the creation of each song on the EP. Think of this as the director's commentary. I hope you enjoy this little look behind the scenes.

This week's backstory is for the title track, Paid Time Off. In it, I talk about:

  • The double-meaning of "Paid Time Off"
  • My personal struggles with work and creativity
  • The process of choosing this beat
  • Kicking verses to the curb

Listen to it here, and let me know what you think:

If you have any questions about any of the other songs, let me know in the comments and I will work them into my future Backstory episodes!
