When I wrote ‘Good For Nothin’, I knew that I wanted something that was different from what I’d done before; I wanted something that would clash with the music I’d released before.
So my producer played this loop of a guitar, and it reminded me of the song that’d play when Cowboys had a standoff; it sounded dangerous and captivating but once I heard the percussion, I was immediately excited! I’d never done something that was this brash and dark; I wanted the entire song to be like that.
My somewhat modest success in the good ol’ music biz came rather late in life, and almost completely by accident. Although, having said that, a lot of hard work had gone into making that accident happen.
Like they always say, “nothing good comes easy” as true as it sounds. It takes hard work, patience, resources, and most importantly, time. Just like refining gold from its ore requires a lot of work, so it is with whatever venture we embark on.
Names are a projection of future desired outcomes and a past which must be overcome to get there – therefore the power to tether the two ends of time with a short sequence of characters carries a weight of responsibility I take on gladly.
