I did the bass, guitars, some trombone. Robbie of Militia of Love did harmonies on the new album, among others.
I was in Dubwize and I was writing a lot. A lot of the songs that are out now (on the new album) never got on the table, or never went well with the band.
Q: Talk about the subject matter of some of the other songs on the album.
A:Some of the songs are more of a love song level. A lot of them are on the conscious level. The last song on the album is called "Starlight Hotel." That song is about our problem here with homelessness. It’s a song based on true experiences.
"Meet Me on the East Side" is another one based on personal experiences. When people to come visit me, I always say "Meet Me on the East Side." It’s telling people to not fall into the rumors or lies, and there’s lots of love and culture out here, so meet me on the east side.
