Robonzo Singing Playing Acoustic

In this episode, Ezra Vancil interviews me about my forthcoming debut single On Top Of The World. We cover the history and process of my songwriting, using public proclamation as a source of accountability, various technical challenges I faced in writing and recording the song, the players involved, and the forthcoming video.

Our discussion covers themes common among creative individuals. Taking the leap from "wanting" to singing one's own music to actually writing and recording a song is one example. Ezra and I are both acquainted with brute forcing our way through certain aspects of the creative processes that apply writing and recording music. We're also familiar with the dilemma of knowing when we're done with a song, its lyrics and even specific parts. When is a song good enough? These are among the many things that can keep musicians from moving forward with writing and recording endeavors. Our conversation also explores the uncertainties, insecurities and obstacles.

This interview was put together as promotional piece for the song. Because Ezra is such a great songwriter and lovely human being, we were able to bounce between my experiences and his. The resulting conversation was helpful to me in many ways. I hope it will be equally so for you.
