Welcome to the 6th edition of Behind the Music. This week: the story behind the title track, "Be Bold." The album, and this song, invite you to BE BOLD in a time when it has never been more important to speak your truth. Enjoy, please share, and get ready for pre-ordering, available April 7th!
"Be Bold" is a song of political and social commentary.
"Everybody finds purpose sometimes
But it's not always sublime
If someone exploits their gold
At the expense of other souls
He's gotta go
With one voice, we're rising up..."
It was exciting to collaborate with Trevor Shifflett and Gabe Giannelli for this song! Two of my former Navy buddies still on active duty, you can check them out here and here. Trevor is a fantastic guitar player (he worked on my first album Where I Belong), and Gabe has the most solid pocket of any drummer I've ever known! And they both recommended Joel Packer, phenomenal bass player, also in the Navy! Check out his tasty licks on the track!
Yours in music,
