Interview with The Seventh Hex Posted!
‘Last Call for the Quiet Life’, Buddy’s sophomore album reflects Buddy’s struggle and reconciliation with himself over the past few years. For Buddy, the songs are a sort of confessional therapy. The album expresses the ups and downs of existence, relationships and family, and the highs and lows of finding yourself in your own life. We caught up with Buddy to discuss his lyrical mindset, enjoying the ‘creative journey’ and his love for The Replacements’ ‘Tim’…
TSH: As you began forming the new album, entitled ‘Last Call for the Quiet Life’, tell us about the unlikely beneficial feature of not knowing where things were going and instead learning to just let it happen and to let things keep unfolding…
Buddy: I’ve learned (the hard way!) in the past that if you try to control things too much artistically and don’t just let creativity happen organically, it’s really easy to stifle it. So, when Will and I started out on the record we were really adamant about letting the songs reveal themselves to us instead of limiting ourselves to a fixed plan. It allowed us to go in a new direction and was a really fun process. (CONTINUE ON The 7th Hex Site)
