New L.A. County ‘Safer at Home’ restrictions revealed amid COVID-19 surge
"Million people infected in two weeks. That's how fast the Corona virus is blitzing through the U. S population and in many states around the country, strict new measures are in place to try to stop the spread. We're going to check in on a few hot spots right now. A three week ban on outdoor dining goes into effect tonight here in Los Angeles County and the Board of Supervisors is considering another stay at home order. Joining us now is Jackie 40, a health reporter with KPCC and L. A. And and Jackie. What is the situation with the rise in cases here in L. A. I mean, we're experiencing a huge surge in new coronavirus cases across California. But like you said, particularly in L. A over the last week, we've broken daily case records. Multiple times. Health officials reported nearly 6200 cases just yesterday. Hospital beds are filling up and now unfortunately, we're seeing deaths really begin to rise over the last week on average, 28 people are reported dead every day. How Jackie, I wanna also ask you about some of the bands that are now going into effect. This outdoor dining band was nearly overturned yesterday in a really close vote 3 to 2 tell us a little bit about that. California has a color coded a reopening system based on Corbett infection rates, and since that was implemented by Governor Gavin Newsom of the summer L A has always been in the strictest here because we have been a hot spot. So indoor dining has not been allowed for months, but outdoor dining has, And now that we're seeing this new surgeon cases L. A county health officials decided to close outdoor dining for at least three weeks and restrict restaurants to take out and delivery. Only yesterday, the L. A Board of Supervisors had a very long spirited discussion about it after hearing from restaurant owners who say that it would just devastate the industry, and now there's no federal funding to help them out. The board eventually voted in favor after health officials said that it's been clear that people are just going to restaurants with folks outside of their immediate families, You know, taking their masks off to eat and therefore increasing the risk of new infections so that then will go into effect tonight at 10. And and there's also talk about of the stay at home order being floated with the 30 seconds. I have. What would that look like? Yeah, it's really designed to keep people in their homes as much as possible. So no gathering with anyone outside of your household. The order would really reduce capacity at places like stores K through 12 schools would continue a 20% capacity. They're really trying to find a sweet spot where they can keep people from gathering and spreading the virus, but still allows him retail stores to remain open. We don't know when it will go into a factor really, exactly where the details will be. Yeah. So much to watch for their That's Jackie 48 Health reporter with KPCC in Los Angeles, California Thank you so much. Thanks.

All california governor gavin newsom issued a curfew between ten pm and five am for all nonessential work and gatherings in most of the state and the order will remain in place until at least december twenty first perhaps even longer but some good news today as well visor and its partner. Biontech are submitting their obligation to the fda for emergency use authorization of their covid nineteen vaccine. This would be the first covid vaccine that goes through the regulatory process. Here's becky the fda's review process is expected to take a few weeks. Advisory committee meeting on the vaccine is tentatively scheduled for early next month. If it's approved some americans could get their first doses in just about a month's time earlier this week study. Data analysis showed this vaccine to be ninety five percents effective and that's incredibly impressive. Let's bring in meg. Terrell she's got more on this good morning. Good morning becky moving incredibly fast and a really historic milestone this morning the first vaccine to go to the fda for covid nineteen to try to stop this pandemic. So we're going to see this regulatory process. Really play out over the coming weeks. We should here typically the way this works is the company alerts the world when the fda has accepted an application and set a date to decide on the drug. We're in a pandemic of course so those dates are not going to be normal. And the communications might be different to we. Might hear from the fda Either the decision timing that they might be looking at and especially about when they're gonna set that advisory committee meeting to discuss this vaccine. That's when outside advisers get together dig apart all of the data around The vaccine the safety the efficacy the manufacturing and talk about also how this should potentially be approved for the market. And it's possible. We will see an application from dern. They said within weeks So we should see that soon. Too and so the expectation that i heard was that the fda had asked those outside advisors to set aside december eighth ninth and tenth three days to potentially discuss. Both vaccines Now dr john taurus from nbc had the fda commissioners steven hahn said scott gottlieb. Stephen hawking on with him yesterday in a facebook live. He asked him about those dates. Any no he said. The fda was going to be flexible. He wouldn't confirm that they had asked them to set those dates. And so we have been hearing since we reported those dates a lot of people sort of saying. Why is this going to take so long So we will have to wait to see what the empty actually does In terms of scheduling that meeting. They do need time to go through the application themselves very carefully. Prepare the documents the committee and then the committee will discuss it and we do expect the fda decide extremely quickly after that meeting Whether to green light this market and then pfizer in biontech. Say they are ready to go within hours after that That green light to start shipping. This guy's yeah. That was one of the things that really caught my attention this morning. The idea that within hours they'd be ready to start shipping vaccine and getting it out there and that brings up the question of how we do that. How do we distribute this. Where does it go. How do we determine who gets it. I never the states have been working on plans along with the federal government to try and figure out how much each state would get. But how does it work. We do even know. Do we have a real game plan for who gets what. When and how we know part of that. So operation warp speed an eighty just secretary alex as are held. A briefing about those plans are earlier. This week And essentially what would happen after. The fda gives the green light if it does then. The cdc has an advisory committee as well that would meet to make recommendations about. Who should get this vaccine. I if there are two vaccines if there are any differences in them you know which groups should get which dosing of that stuff So that's expected to happen extremely quickly. And then the cdc makes recommendations about how much each state should get Secretaries are based on population. We also know of course that because supply will be so limited that there are going to be prioritized groups. Healthcare workers are expected to be at the top People with underlying health conditions that make them more severe. More vulnerable to severe disease will also be at the top so We'll see how that gets allocated to the states based on what. The group recommends

I don't think we've and we talk about the the the economy and what happened with the pandemic. i don't think we've even come close to feeling the results of it We put it off like putting credit card. Well very similar to putting on a greg. Ask everything out. Put it in coffee cans. So i thought this was interesting. We're talking earlier in the week. About how spacex little upstart company. I mean i realize it's not just Alon mosque in three of his buddies. It's it's a serious company but third richest man in the world. They now are selling space rides to the government because they can do it so much more efficiently. And they beat. boeing To the punch boeing trying to get their stuff together. It's gonna come around soon. And like i said earlier in the week. They're a great american company. I'm not running down boeing. But we speculated that spacex can just move a lot more quickly and innovatively and we got this interesting note from alien or al-anon mus I worked for the world's largest medical device company and i can say with absolute certainty. The average startup can dance circles around us released products and half the time the time while large companies are much more risk averse than a nothing to lose startup. it's the internal barriers that slows down. The most our internal systems require the completion of several procedural documents that we spend dozens of hours working to compete complete. Rather many of these documents go far beyond the regulatory requirements that everyone must live by the newer. the technology. The deeper into the system of project will start meeting. They have to dig through more layers of our internal systems before that product is released to the market.

This was the very first in a string of encounters with arizona locals every time anyone found out where we were from the at the very least had a snide remark to make about newsom and offered their sympathies that we lived under such a tyrannical rule was all it was humorous but also comforting to know that there are people outside of cornea that are also fed up outraged.

"Ted fields project basically, and then that was the end of that and the Kiro Blah. We had the power interscope had ntd US helping us with the video. That was the judge was amazing I saw often thinking about MTV and such a shame by museums. Manage the. is now what she all the time I don't think. Can I. Can I have two answers for you for that if you want? One before we tell me his mother genius concept about MTV, the Anti is the we all pay programming. That wasn't even guaranteed to get on that, so we'd like -spense between two hundred fifty out of like so much money. WAS A low video nights to say you spent three, hundred grand or video, which was like taking it easy. In a charitable numbers now And You, pay. And then you'd sit. Just please please. Programming nowadays to to grant a program on Netflix's, they're gonNA. Show it. We'd spend it on full minute clip. That was get played terrible Jesus then so go was your theory and well. So there so I believe that there were. If I understand the way that works number one. First of all. I can tell you that having done a television show on MTV for a long time. Music video shows were the lowest rated shows. As they. If more people had watched them than they would have program the more, but when it started in the eighties, it was such a revolutionary thing, and even then people said well attention spans like the kids Gen-x fucking idiots. Their attention spans watching these three minute clips. But attention spans got shorter and shorter and shorter, so not only did they rate low, but at a certain point MTV started realized that they couldn't actually monetize just music video shows. Dave needed to own Ip so they started creating shows that they could create an license internationally I imagine so it was a combination of those things, but even in the ninety s people would say like. Your fucking show like MTV's to play music videos I remember that in the nineties. People say that in now. You know I don't know MTV's probably forty about forty years old, so mtv to me feels like a forty year old guy like hey, what are your kids like? Let me see what I can give your kids.

This instant I think everything's end the first track. I, remember it so vividly. That First Guitar riff from that Song, it just made me feel like I. Love the summit, Work and but. The, fact that you basically had a fucking gold mine, you had a brick of south gold that at first people like there's not even anything on here, and it turned out that literally every think of album Popeye five number one singles, but that was Hollywood records snow. Hollywood records so sometimes when people. Disney began the label. Might not have high the. WHOEVER THE FAMOUS AND ON COOL! Right, and so when it started when it turned, and it sounded like it turned like once it started to turn, it sounded like it turned out pretty quickly. What did the momentum change of that feel like to go back to London to just work a regular job for three months and then all the sudden like. We're like. Blue. I worked a regular job. And, then and then I came out through the summer and then came out to La. Doug. Played A Club cool on on on on Sense A. Shift me account things about it with the cow when they have bands Ed Nights Lot I, Dunno. Keep them on. The gaslight is not. Anyway whatever so some will correct. Yes, so came out and Dan. I had a one trip to L. A.. And that's what I had begun like you recognise Karaoke. A Karaoke she knows. Though isn't it cast on November, and then we came with tour in January February will record on December, so it was really insane. The momentum and it just was like being put into a incredible movie of of line of what it might be like. You know from the first show. CBGB's was professed. Tool date and Before the vote is still and when it was literally, the Stinky Club and I'm not being to the sound move couldn't get back in. Because, it was so packed. That sounds like I've never had his first homer. And her songs and new songs. was played just. GotTa like this one. Song Never Hud played the. Camden there's not on you've never heard. But you start playing shows where people come in, they're instantly connected already. I mean like that's a whole.

It's like his vintage boxing, but. Is. There's no. Place. I do miss the days of going to like tower records. And then just looking at album covers like just looking at the covers as part of the experience whether or not, you're going to buy something. Obviously, you'd have bands that you liked. Then you would see a particularly cool provocative covers something really. I. Don't know what this is, but the vibe of this covers so good I'm going to try it, and you might actually like it some. Dixie Smith's of Roosevelt's I challenge. The pixies is not cover. Was Remember the the flamenco dancer Seagal. Side Schoff! Is Iconic. So I used to what I do and I miss a law is what I'd get a record of bands. I like my favorite Banos into. You know that the ceremony getting back. You bring on Vinyl. You look at the art work. You open it up and I'd always go straight to the thanks. And I listen to the words. Thanks loons hanging out with my bag on walls. Let me to see any. And I've never made it onto those thank you. I never knew anyone who was in bad that. By the time I knew people. He went doing. Oh. They didn't so when you. When you started releasing albums, you not do. was there no space to do? Thank US anymore. Now known we did all of my daughters to like to everyone. I've met in my life, and that is lunch and I was running with. My girlfriend is a I. Love Lindsey announced five years. And I. Miss Fellow on that because cute. She's reading mad at me about it like this is like sixteen stuff i. Mad about. She goes mathers us. Madden! You like you took the care to like? Put some extra thought into this extra sweet rats like wait what you WanNa do that awesome boy. That could change. Don't worry going. Settle anything anyway. Now. Oh my God. I worked at I worked at K rock from ninety five to ninety eight, which was the? Oh, that's my time yet. That was the peak era for K rock like directing pop music. I remember like walking by Kevin whether funny. With MTV, the judge know of that was just defined. Defined defined because. I worked for both of them I. I did a show on MTV single out. It was a dating show and I worked at K rock simultaneously, and the the influence that both of them had in the ninety s on pop culture. Was Mind blown because? It, it just everything's changed, but I remember hearing you could hear a song and Kevin weatherly office, and then a week later it was in heavy rotation, and that band would be hugh like it was. It was such a magical thing to witness, because it was very like in the movies like you hear song on the radio and the next thing. It's climbing up the charts like I got to see that happen where his going to run spotify. Is Running spotify now. We've gone to some some huge huge job. With spotify North America. But then where I mean, he's the one that. You know there are not that many people in your life you know. A few people mine life. Into people and he is very central. To my life and his. Yuno. Support. Band was, really special. Yet when Kevin got behind something he was. I I loved the Guy He put me on the air. I came on to do an interview, and then he was like Ab WanNa do do you want to be a DJ go? And, so he put me, but I was on midnight to five, but does does songs on sixteen stone. Tim gives be this to do with the snips midnight to five, I was literally the only person in the entire studio. Because it was, so it was. It was such a weird. They didn't even track ratings from midnight to five, so there was no call screener there was. It was just me in that you know I'm whatever that ninth floor and. You know like that building in Burbank. And that was it. was. It was three or four days of three or four nights a week, but when he, too, so like I. Had you know like wasn't weird staying up all night but it. It was it was an incredible time to be there to witness how much music change and when I left in ninety eight music away and sort of went more like limp biscuit Bruno. Rap Rock whatever, but I love the period of time that I was there and it although songs are so, they're so special to me because it was just such a magical time. We actually played CD's. Your poll CDs and like Carson Stick Riding. So, how did you? How did how did Kevin did with did Kevin Discover WHO. Signed to label. Records in a valley and a can't London. People didn't know whether this was a legit. Labels legit situation, but I'll sort of hovering around late was in England. Not really we weren't getting signed. People weren't prepared to take that leap of faith and. I think at that time. Anyway, it was so low fill. The whole Britpop seems going on. Swayed with big really big band time Blah Oasis. So, we will I normally anyway. We were like one pixies. Sent to record company direct deal in foreign country like they did in. Four other. I saw as a a so as a challenge to. Not Be Insane. Something happening to them to us was. And so. We. We actually had the record in. It went to Hollywood records. Are distributed on this this guy. Frank Wells was killed in anacleti crash. One of the heads of Disney. and. He's very sad and Suddenly! We had known band and it was a great quote. Someone said about six anonymous singles on record is out tracks so new dropped us. Yeah, they dropped us and so then I went back to work and I. Three Months back from London. I'm being dramatic once I know how. Much is assigned made record and then I. So for me I saw a failure, and so he's struggling. All you make your record and you can have could breakfast every morning hatred. As lead when you go home and making record great to work. I was like well. Lifetime Life It's like so. It's no way slowly and. Then the cool up. What happened was. My labeled got played at K rock picked up by. Ted feel over the records Hud on camera, and then in Jimmy Dean, and so it was.

"To do it. You basically wanted to do it for one. Cycle one one tool that gets all. This chaos so I'm still hungry as A. As A, Kid On. One of the Lord of the flies. You know I'm still hungry that Tom can cost away I feel that. Get an a love it. So this way I mean somebody trying to on this sloppy deliver. I think the the adage of as good as your law song released lost. Show just holds true. They're going to find that lost. Stand up is like works at that's like good. You're well. The Beacon Theater full years ago amazing angle. But I. You know for me. Having done both. But it's different for status because like I need to theaters are fun wants to act is in a very presentational mode right, but I but I like being in clubs because they're very intimate. You're almost standing in the crowd. I can riff with people I can work on new material. I can pivot when you're when you're doing a theater, you. You can't really talk to people in the audience because people up there don't can't see the person in the front and they care so I don't know I mean is the experience for you different in terms of? D like the energy of an intimate room versus versus a theater, versus like arena like is there. Is there too many people? Are there not enough people like, or is it all different? Right I think that in. The balance that I always try and find is no matter how where the emphasized the room the we play from. Really big big places to smoke sometimes like one offs. Surprise shows so autumn sizes. The trick is for me. Personally Tena. Performer is to just establish intimacy. Established connections with whoever whatever the size the ordnance Just, to not be is connected from the crowd, and to find a way to just right to connect with the crowd known and really. Sign has formerly just is absurd Hidden Wave. You know that you can outsail into someone's like psyche in that in space. You can't get it. Clearly miss it and you kind of any connection with them and. Does disconnected show like for instance when I don't like is really highs, stages right stage the worst people like down the pits like really down. It's you trauma best and I've done. A few movies boasts production new second I know. I can unravel the unroll the festival inside of my life. Just be like I'm so connected to I can't see your like below my ankles, your fifteen my ankles, but my goodness connected. Yeah I totally agree. It's weird to look down town so But that's the gist a bit and an another thing that I love to do is You know quite uninhibited performance in our light up to uninhibited MVP free. is to be as energized and committed and looking for connection is if you play two hundred. Fifty people. And it's so much fun. Because when the small venue be even kind of make people feel a bit. Awkward be with you by. God. This is a lot of performance in a small space. Like you know, I'm GONNA loosen up dates gonNA, leave it. You know maybe you. You'd so fools people to be involved. That's why the especially when I go in the crowd. I go in the crowd, because like breaking the wool between the stage in the audience and I live. Going to back the room with people can't believe that you've made the effort. Of you know texting something. It just. Go up there in seats. The slide. Need of somebody will find it hard to get out of the. Trip they knock over popcorn drinks is and but the real the real it's like the energy wavelength is like me. Going on the crowd is just sort of plugging everyone's energy into the wall socket every. Day. It's like it's really good fun. You said something that I I would love to try to explore a little bit because it. I'm endlessly fascinated by it, but you know you're only as good as your last thing. You know whether it's music or stand up whatever in I am. I I feel like there's this constant struggle between. Because in the creative pursuits, it can be very difficult to quantify the ultimate question, which a lot of people want to answer, which is how doing am I doing well, and when you work in a very linear job. Okay, you get to this point, and then you get a raise in a promotion, and then you get this, and then you get a parking space, and then you get a watch. It was very linear, but what we do is not linear at all and I feel like we can get into a lot of trouble as performers by. Picking the wrong things to define whether or not, we're doing a good job, you know we look at a lot of external cues, but I feel like the internal cues are just as important how we're perceiving what we're doing, and so how to navigate that because you know what you said I, you know it's true. The music business year as good as your last thing, but is another way to look at that like yeah, but that means that you could still be a second away from another big thing you know it's like it's. It's never really over. If you continue the journey I don't know. Does any of that makes sense of course? It's the press business tyrod open. You know your your continually. You Know Me. I'm always semi tone away from disaster so I think we're always on that precipice. That driving and causing that you know you're you're. Five foot from goodale direction getting killed by another absolutely absolutely, but just in terms of how define success for ourselves. You know it's. It's so easy to just look at the external stuff like cash. How many people showed up? How much money how much notoriety how much blah blah blah, but you know the internal stuff like the fact that you are just as passionate playing for fifty people versus fifty thousand people is a great. That's good, because if you only had a very narrow way to define how you, probably you switched off to five thousand people anyone below five thousand. It's a total failure. You guys like you're okay, but you know. Four four nine nine nine note bags, five thousands of magic number, five thousand and up, but there are, but there are people that and I also think it's interesting that your band. Got To a certain point. Where like? Yeah, yeah, yeah, we, we get it. We have success. We played stadiums. We've done everything, but now there's life stuff, and you ever think about the life stuff when you're in your twenties. You just think about playing for stadiums. I would imagine right. Yeah. They I suppose there are more responsive me. They had kids earlier. I'm lucky can bring my kids out on the road. And I don't know there's a Solo Wade signed me that even though it's. Hard challenges away from road I'm with them all the time because my four spot. Is what I do. I think that when you have kids, you know. One of them to join my life, my lives join men, and so therefore that especially now it's not you know. The. Streaming I mean we both remember the times when musicians could exist by selling records now.

I have friends who are educators who have written books to teach parents how to understand like screw, renew math, and how it works, because it is entirely different from how we were taught growing up. Yeah I think the answer is do yeah, the answer is Google, but that's the thing. I always wondered like. How would I? I can't imagine what school would have been like. If literally the answer to everything was in my pocket at all times. I just can't I. Remember having to check out books and. Available, so I had to wait. SAW report was late because I.

Think much of me so that tells me just not good enough yet and I need to go work at all and so I wasn't upset at them. I just knew that wasn't good enough yet. 'cause if you're good enough if it was the right time or if you remarkable whatever it was it was really on me you know. I didn't want to blame them. A lot of people like the blame somebody else and you know what I say when they blame somebody else. That's bull it is on you. You understand me So if the offer is bad you're bad you are worse. What they're offering by the way K. Because if they really really need you the numbers GonNa come up. If you're doing a great great great great job. Your value is higher so for me. I knew I wasn't doing a great enough job because if I was they would've thought my value is higher so I knew I still sucked and I need to work on it and it took me years longer and I'm happy that it took me longer. I'm happy that they knew I sucked because had I gotten signed then what if accidentally I would had hit and still sucked now. You suck in your famous. Yeah and you're famous for sucking. I understand what I'm saying. That's my life. I know I'm Sir. That's worse I believe anybody can get famous. Matters is what you get famous for. Hopefully it's for being good at your craft you know and so whatever that thing is i. I thought it was important that that they're deal. Told me that I sucked. Yeah 'cause you know why because I did suck and the deal got better when I didn't suck as bad anymore. You know what I mean and then I hope you renegotiated it and got a little bit. I was somebody else but but I did. And and that was more but that deal was an indication of hey don't suck as bad anymore. Yeah you know what I mean like and That that that to me was the lesson you worse what they're offering you know what I'm saying. You're not you're not. You're worth it. You're offering your worth what they're willing to pay you. Yeah because when you start negotiating if that price doesn't come up it's ACAS. They won't pay me. It's you're not worth that much to them. Yeah that's all there is to it and for me. I wasn't good enough to be worth any more than that. Yeah it to me I that I had to take that upon myself to say my song. My songs aren't enough. You know what I mean. I need a home my craft. I need I need to get better at this craft at this at this skill. I'm not taking this seriously enough. You know because if I was their math would reflect that that I've put in the time for this you know and For me it was a lesson. I wasn't mad at them for for a bad offer. I thought the offer was perfectly I thought that offer was the perfect lesson to be totally honest with you earlier. You're talking about a question that you were asked and it meant something to you normally do a like a rapid fire thing at the end of the show. But I don't WanNa do that. Actually I WANNA come into it with your own. I do nothing rapidly as you can say. No but I also limit Charles Dickens novel all the words all of them yeah I get paid for syllable beautiful. I will say this. Actually the key. I was noticing this because my fiance's from New York and it's very fun. Like New Yorkers are very interesting to me year New York when you want to be New York when you have to be when you're talking about being tough and like going through Shit Your New York and then when you're like this sentimental then all of a sudden you're like non like that's right. There's there's no dialect anymore and I and I find interesting when you WANNA be tough. It's a it's not even yeses dialect but it's it's almost like a state of mind that you get into of like okay. I need to get back to where from I'm from and I gotTa talk like it. It's very interesting if you go back and listen this episode. There are moments when you're talking about your childhood and times were tough and I notice it because I'm a radio guy with the way that you change your voice but you're also performing and that's what you do normally but it's very interesting when you want to be Who you are It bleeds out of you. You know and I love that about you early. You said something you ask the question. If you could change anything about your life would change is. Was that the question that you pose was that your dad asked that I asked my father the. Us Your father that I said. What would it be crazy? My level would be. You're an adult now.

"So I WANNA to get back to you breaking through because it's one thing for your dad to be in tears being like you can do the thing that I could never do. And that means so much to me and that meant so much to you but I want to get to the point of which your father seeing. It makes it all worthwhile because there was a time. That HAP- I I know there was your dad was like I was right about him. Will he? My father was a because he'd played music for living and he knew that that That world and that Feeling and he knew he had talent for it. My brother and I played music. You know growing up through high school and played ballrooms and stuff him when you quit playing ball and here like as like you man you come search actually now mid the bar tonight you know Tuesday. Yeah she me and like me and my brother playing gigs. You know my Dahbi out there hanging out having a beer you know getting up playing with us and stuff like that. And that's just how he grew up you know and It created a different sort of family. dynamic and families that play music together. I think are unlike any other type of family. There's another family. I grew up with name the row. Shes and they all played music. They're a great group of people and they all played great. Actually Seth who's also my age He's in He's Keith urban strimmer. He's wonderful musician he grew up. You know down. You know the next the next town over you know me and his cousin went to the prom together. You know what I mean. Yeah I mean it's like just of you know musical families and It gives those families another excuse to hang out like come hang out that you bring your drum kit and all such and such and I'll bring a banjo and you bring such and such. You know it's a whole nother culture. When he got families that are playing music. Yeah you know you go in having a family reunion having hootenanny. He knowing you're all campfire in an somebody's roasting a pig. And you know people are playing their picking and plan accord in and sing an old Hank Williams songs and stuff like that. So it's another really you know And so my father seeing These small successes happened and my mother sees small success out in the rest of the family. Seeing these small successes happened day them something to talk about back home and to be proud of and you know your neighbors were proud and they were hanging out and they're coming down in a show here and there in New York City. They wanted to support you in the beautiful thing. You know when you're in a small town also you know there's maybe there's less events happening so it's nice when somebody you know. They're they're proud of you. They tend to be a lot of people. Are Proud of you when you're out in the big city trying to make it and maybe you're having a little bit success They're calling their friends or their family members. Hey Do you know anybody who works at such and such Gavin's gotTa Gay? Do you think you could have you know what I mean? They're all doing what little you know. If they can do anything they're trying to you know Of course you know you you even from a small town. You're going to have your haters. You're going to have the guy who hates your guts because you got out in our media is always that guy you know the one who no matter how nice you ever were to a mall. He's thinking as you you know there's always going to be that you can't do anything about that. Nothing you can do about that. You know You just gotTa keep going and But but fundamentally you know those the people who knew you when you were growing up there really proud of you because they know it's such a bizarre impossible dream to see your passion come to fruition Particularly in the arts. You know it's we all know it's an opinion based game. Yeah so it's not like you're playing basketball. It's almost like you're obviously the best basketball player. So you'll be on this team. You know what I mean the greatest musician in the world and not ever get a GIG. You know because it's well it's according to my opinion it's not very good. You know someone will say so. You felt like basketball. You're just junk on everybody's ass you mean like if you're the greatest in your clearly just dominating everybody music is different. You know it's an it's an art. It's an opinion so so no matter how much time you put in And no matter how good you think he of no matter how good of a job you think you're doing someone will say it's garbage you know it's just the nature of it you know. Some people won't like it just because it does sound. Nice they go. It's too nice for me out. Whatever I'll give me a break. You know what I mean. Yeah so this is just the nature of it you know. I know but the moment that like you had a hit charting on the radio like it was a thing. What did your family say? Then because like it's so dope that like your parents wore championing you beforehand like being like the fact that you're living your dream would actually why I've worked so hard because I want my kids to live this thing hundred percent. Yeah they're like don't do what I do. Of course you know what I mean. But here's what I want to hear about. I want to hear about the time that your parents heard that song or or like we're like I can't get any more tickets sold out. You know like I want that story and then several several layers to okay so my brother. Joey is a dynamite and Actually look for his record. It'll become an is called The steady drinkers so love. It's great name right straight up rock band and so so he He's always been somebody who is listening to music and show me music and stuff like that. Because I was a little brother. You know. So He'd say oh you got to hear this record for Bligh you get in the car. And he's playing like some old Boston record to away or like queen records and things like this and so anyway I would play. You know all these cover songs you know because he and our plan these cover bands so one day he walks in to the room of the piano is at. We had this rickety just crap piano douse you know something keys in work tune you know and I really have a good instrument and but I've been looking at these books reading all these. You know songs figuring out the songs I liked. And he's a forty doing on practice. Learn the song that song he said. Why don't you write your own song? Why write your own songs? I said well all the great ones are already written amazed. Just learn these which is ironic. Because when I was a kid I used to write songs when I was like a little kid. Yeah but then I stopped because I thought what am I doing? It's embarrassing so he told me. Well if you write your own song some fifteen. Why should anybody remember you? Which is a challenge immediately began writing songs literally that day literally. I actually remember the first tune in that capacity at the piano. The descending baseline I'm ripping off the Beatles. I'm writing about some girl in her very complex story and it's really elaborate and I'LL CIGNA myself. What the Hell am I doing? I know nothing about this. Yeah I'm singing about somebody's story just to make up some interesting story about something. Nothing about to tug at heartstrings. In the although I liked the tune all I could think of was this is utter bull. Yeah this story. Is You know what I mean. But for years our play these songs and my brother who ended up moving to Manhattan March. One thousand nine hundred ninety eight. We got a one bedroom apartment. We shared a bedroom in Hell's kitchen. Forty ninth between ninth and tenth across the street from a high school that was basically training children to get ready for prison and every day. I'd be writing songs work in our day. Jobs jobs sell cigarettes magazines at kiosks. Whatever waiting tables drinking all night anyway? I'm playing songs from my brother all time. He's always going. It's pretty good pretty good pretty good. One day. I play the Song. I don't WanNa be and I played the hook and my brother standing at the edge of the piano at this little apartment. I had and he goes. That's your can hit. You finally got one. You finally got it. He freaked out. Yeah I said really think so. You finally got it and it was. I don't WanNa be yeah and Ironically I had already signed a publishing deal with Warner and so I was a writer already but hadn't written that song yet and essentially got signed to Warner brothers. Weren't chapel on a song called more than anyone which ended up being a B side on my first record. Yeah but when? I don't WanNa be that soon that me and my brother loses mind and And so ultimately yeah that was my first hit and it and it did change my life and you know you go from you know playing for you know a couple blocks living in New York you know I was playing ballrooms and I was. I got to the point rows doing actually pretty well In those bars I had to really play one night a week and I had the rest of the week off because I was making really good money But outplay out multiple times a week anyway. So do my money Gig once a week and then like throwing guitar. Whatever and then I'll go play these other dates that were not official dates down by Trade World Trade Center After nine eleven I would go play there every once a week. Place this no longer there but I go down there because the workers down there and stuff like that. I want to play like a little local stuff. They'd be hanging and And so I still play several nights a week but I knew that I. I was like in pretty luxurious position as a musician. Just planned gigs. That that money GIG was once a week and it was good enough money. Get through the week which was crazy in New York. Because New York's expensive yes but had a good following and My friends were showing up and buddies our just promoting me. Just guys are drinking buddies. Mind but yeah. They have a plane it was. You know the hang how the hang is up in But going from that environment where your folks are coming. The shows and they're happy about a couple of hundred people out made a coming out tonight to seeing you on the road and you know playing with you know heroes your heroes and stuff Life changing you know what I mean. It's not like I was like I had of hitting all of a sudden we were rich. You know that wasn't it at all. Because you're not you know but it is still psychological. It's just a vacation right lane validation. That's I meant meant to say it's validation so suddenly you have this. It's an emotional wealth. Yeah and which by the way are you walking on water which by the way I feel like is actually more valuable than real wealth. It is it. Is You know why because it's health. Yeah it's your health and it also can move forward for a long time. Yeah you know we're a actual money can only push you for until it runs out. Yeah Yeah and and so that that that that moment in your life and that That that being on the way up is a special time. Yeah to you know. And you're what twenty five. I didn't get a record deal so I was twenty six. Okay Twenty six twenty seven. Yeah when I turned a record deal down when I was twenty one I had moved to New York. I had been working at a lumber yard and You know like packing trucks and like you know pack and flatbeds and you know tacking together kitchens and you know building some bullets wine racks and yeah. That was a no carbon. He no but I can swing a hammer..

"Specific I mean a lot when he got walked. Every you've said a couple times and I thought. Wow that's so specific. I'm sorry no good so I remember. He paid off the garage and we got in the car. And I says my dad as we're going over this low bridge is bridges. Probably wasn't like a real. It wasn't like a significant period just went over the local piece of local lake. Little edge of it was five feet above the water. You know one hundred feet long and I said Dad if you could change anything about your life what would it be and He says sesame drives me. I never would have stopped playing music. He said I said no he said yeah now I never would have stopped playing. That's one thing I'd change and I thought noted you know I remember that and I remember I thought to myself. I don't WanNa be the guy in the car with his kids thinking himself. I didn't chase my dreams and heavily enough. I thought and I knew it was my father Jean to play music. And it's part of lent itself to my desire to accomplish the mission of play music for living because I wanted to validate my father. Yeah and I wanted to validate my mother's grandfather. I wanted to validate that. There was talent there and that it wasn't bull to pursue talent. It's not a pipe dream and and that And that it's a. It's not a last resort to pursue your passion. You know what I mean. It requires a level of professionalism to accomplish the mission and bravery and And so once upon a time. Nineteen years old dropping. Adam. My Second College and I just visited my mother's sister's family all right put in place in time where what how old Berkeley College Music Guy. So that's but also like that's very well known right. Musical College right took Berkeley and Belmont are the two big ones right like in the country. So you're dropping out of Berkeley right. Okay how dropping out of school again and I'm I'm telling them I'm going to drop ask. Yeah again and The asking me why and I said yes we emotional. Yeah so I said it's because this is hold me back colleges pay to play what I mean is you're paying to be in a safe place to pursue your passion and that's King Lane. That's not courageous. That's not job market. That's where people go when they're scared of the real world world. That's where the parents send them went to scared to death that they're baby will be out in the real world. Yeah period colleges where you send your kids because Y- you're scared parent your your kids. You'RE GONNA make bad decisions. You know what I'm saying. It's a halfway house and guess what it's a very expensive one. It is very expensive. That's right and and so from where you came from a Nick Stream Lee expensive debts right and so unless you're getting a scholarship free ride totally. Yeah well unless you go medical school unless you're becoming an architect. Yeah I say savior dough invest that book in your rent. Chase your dream because if you're going to be out of the job. Market accumulating tremendous debt. It's way worse way worse debt. Then you would have been an if you're planning a couple of gigs in night. Yeah working a job. I mean. Think about the debt year. And then you don't understand it's crazy. It's absolutely crazy. The math doesn't add up for me now. If that adds up for someone else's parents you know blow you a kiss but it doesn't work for me. Yeah and I realized the fear of the folks was mostly just that they were afraid. I wouldn't have a backup plan. Okay but hold on till you you tell them this and like I imagine like from from what I've heard of the story. Your parents seem very blue collar. You College you go to College. You get a good job you get a good job. You got a good pension. You got a good pension. Your kids are at me fine like like. I could hear that you're telling your parents listen. I'm bailing out of this school. Which is by the way. Just so people know. It's not easy to get into the Berkeley College music. It's not you are now leaving this place. What is their response? Sure you should do this or this and that. I don't know if this is the right move. I should the scissor right move every year. I told them this very fundamentally I play music for living. Yeah Connie's go all play for live in. I want the world to hear but the problem is when you're trying to play music that the world's going to here and you know that there's a limited time when you can do that. Your youth is a window. That's always closing okay. And the fundamentals are that the market knows that so therefore the window of opportunity is always closing so the long ride delay to head to that window the more narrow that openings going to be and if I'm GonNa sit there and college wasting my youth at a competitive market to perform music. That's another two three. Four years of my youth were on marketable. But you had the wherewithal to see that like that is what you're saying is in periodically so correct. He had also very hard to grasp at nineteen years old. Yeah I think you're right but you know when you look at the success and and you're right I guess because but when you look at the success of what was happening with popular music you'd see you always see boy bands. Yeah you see You know child stars and things like that. And that's all over the radio and occasionally in anomaly breakthrough of an act that actually know plays arrangement. They can sing in the right songs. I knew I was not going to be in a boy band. That doesn't speak to me and I knew I was no longer thirteen here. I mean I didn't have staged parents and that type of thing. You know that kind of stuff never really appealed to me. It's not what I wanted. I wanted to make the kind of music I love listening to when I was growing up when I was a big billy Joel Fan. And you know Tom. Petty and Bob Seger and Beatles and Dino Mellencamp and you know Elton in Sam Cook and Marvin Gaye and you know musicians musicians musicians. That musicians look up to. Yeah you know and I but I also knew just to be realistic that no nobody was going to be interested in signing a fifty year. Old Musician you know. You gotta go in when you're when you're young enough because the audience that distinguishes listeners taste is always a younger audience to begin with and and so I knew I was already at a disadvantage because already nineteen and I thought that was too old in fact probably the most depressing day of my life was the dad turned twenty one. 'cause I thought that's it that didn't make yet and I'm already twenty one game over really. Yep So you turn twenty one. You're big hit comes at what year years later. I'm and I'll tell you what when I was nineteen. I told my folks I was leaving school and I was all upset. We had we had it out. You know my pops out of the car. We were crying. He sat up in New York Outside of Berkley. Outside my apartment okay. He says You're my hero. He said to me heavy. Yeah I said what he says to me. You're my hero. I said. Why would you say that he said heavy from Helen? He said do it. He said I never had the courage to doing doing. Yeah to go all in and I know you do thank you bake. Yeah and Because the thing that also is frustrating. Is that the most power that you need like. Is that the most wind in your sails that you can get your father's You follow telling you your is here. S by tremendous. I don't know if there's anything other than that like you said. I said well what happened. Yeah Your Dad saying that. You're my hero. Yeah that's like well I can. I can tackle man Everest now. You know that big yeah right well. This is the same guy that you know. Six years later I came off my i. It and I got out of the van exhausted jiving all night and I crawled out of the van and he'd been leaving gravel from the house and I went to give them a hug. I said dead at a game half a hug. He walked over me with a pickaxe. He gave half a hug. He said good to see you. Take this pickaxe and needed to dig a trench from that edge. The property line over there over that his father. I said that I'm jiving all night. He goes that's okay. Don't forget where you came from. I needed to dig a trench plant. Not Deep just jd. Just keep the rain off the house. What you'll be good you'll be done a few hours. Yeah during a meet and But that was my pops. Yeah you know so you know. That was years later. That was twenty.

"It's on with the flint from my back pocket. You know what I mean. It was just about being so alpha and so over the top. You know and we of which we've all seen that guy walk into the club. Yeah we'll kind of right and we've also always we've all been that person who's felt real good work really good exactly you walk in like Ham. I feel really could tonight mail on. You know what I'm saying like I'm here with the right people for this place. And he don't mean like dude. Got My back in robot you know what I mean. I know the bartender like it was like yeah really good at here right. You know what I mean that that environment and so you write a song about that type of thing and and and that's an expression of yourself. That's an element of who you are as an artist knowing that you're held accountable for what you're putting out you know that sometimes it's going to be some sort of flack for that too. You know what I mean like. Oh we liked it better when you were saying about. You weren't sure if he fit in place and then the next song is yeah. I misplaced so so as an artist you you you keep that in. Mind too but for me. I think it's important to express all those elements of yourself because that's who I am. Yeah you know and I think that's who all of us are the show. I don't know if anyone told you but the show is an origin story. Show this one I'm obsessed with how people got where they are. So I WANNA get into that. Like who's been very interesting to hear a little bit of that actually kind of like one dive back in at the end But I wanNA know where you came from. Yeah okay coup Okay here's where I came from. Have you ever seen the movie dirty dancing? Yes you know what's funny? My fiance was in the movie. Dirty dancing the the second iteration. You're kidding me. Not what was it called still dirty dirty dirty dancing after Benson? That's actually amazing world. So so the movie. Dirty dancing was fundamentally based on an area of upstate. New York Okay K. During very specific era in American history used to be referred to as the Borscht belt the catskill mountains region was a place where a lot of people from New York City would go during the summertimes to get. Outta the heat to get a little breather. Yep Be in the in the mountains get nice beautiful perfect climate summers and prior to Las Vegas. It was the most popular place for performers to go up and perform. She had everybody performing up there during the summertime. So in the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties. The heyday of it. You'd see you know Sinatra up there and you know Sammy Davis Junior and Sam Cook and you name it right so my great granddad was a dance instructor at MCI at a hotel up there. Because that's what that was the Mecca of it right and he would make his kids. Give dance lessons to the guests to rights. Who is very much like dirty dancing? Okay I've got these great pictures of my great grand. I would like Sam Cooke and Ella Fitzgerald you know from the era well. The economy died up there over time whether it was bad politics. Or you know air conditioning. Becoming more normal or air travel becoming more affordable right. Yeah whatever it would be and Over time the state of New York and the building prisons upstate New York to you know help the local economy so I ended up growing up in the prison town era of the dirty dancing area so most of the hotels were closed down or closing down and the area was really Say depressed that's just say think that's the term right the politically correct term for poor and Ultimately even though my pops was you know really a musician and my mom was a musician. That's what they were at heart and they had played music and stuff like that ultimately you know had to get you know everybody got real normal jobs. My Dad ended up working for the state of New York and worked at a Maxi Max prison so my hometown had three prison. Senate and Small town you know. I mean I graduated with eighty people so you can imagine. It was like a good part of the local economy. She going to school whether you knew it or not at the time. You essentially are going to school with definitely. They were definitely inmates. Kids and officers kids growing up together though was certainly part of the of the local community. You know wasn't something we thought about really as children but now that I think back on a relaxed that was part of it mixed in with whoever was left over from the old school era of people who vacationed up there and probably fell in love with the mountains and decided. Let's move to the mountains of New York and this and that you know so it's old money a little bit of that. Maybe a little old money. Maybe it's cloudy. And then people who are dealing with the convicts. Yes yeah and mixed in with some you know town jobs town jobs you know mostly mostly whatever jobs kinda came through the through local government or state government. You know what I mean. They had a good portion of that school On the free lunch program. You know Like right now if you looked at my hometown. Probably seventy percent of that school's probably on free large program you know be probably my guess. Yeah but That's that's the town you know so it was one of those places where you know we. We saw the trajectory. I think years ago where it was headed only because we knew what it was compared to prior to that. We're like oh so it used to be really really nice up here in thriving you know and every time I dad you know what dropped me off the school you know like if I missed the bus or something. They got used to be so packed around here. Man Used to be girls walking up and down this road all the best so it was the name of this town this calls Burke Okay Falls Berg New York and the town. I grew up in a hamlet of the town of faulty records. South Falls Burke. There was no north West or east falls group but there was a South Fourth Burqa falled. Ruse made up of a bunch of other. Hamlets Hurley. Bill would burn woodridge bound Dale Gavlak shelter and had this really checkered Sort of Story on top of that about twenty five thirty minutes away is where the original Woodstock Festival happened and so which was actually a town called Bethel New York never actually happened in the town of Woodstock lot of people. Don't know that as far you snobby artists out there who's GonNa Police Woodstock Woodstock really never happen there. So you know it happened in Bethel guys sorry to break it to you and You know what I'm saying. Anime cool little town but you know it never happened in your down You know and so I grew up here and all the stories about Woodstock and you know my dad and my mother Woodstock together my dad. Was this draft papers for Vietnam and his back pocket you know. And he didn't WanNa go to war and this and that you know is the era so but it was always so there was that undertone of woodstock happened near here And all the entertainment used to be around here but we're kinda growing up in this really economically stressed out tough place to live. The weather always looks like after. Summer's over is it gets real up there. Yeah you know what I mean. And it's like everybody had a plow truck. You know my father would make me go. Snow Shovel might our driveway. Then I have to go snow shovel my other neighbor and then I'll have to snow shovel my other neighbor. I remember. He made me go do that right before a basketball game. I had a scrimmage. He goes so shovel out our cars. Then go do EFI now go do happy and I did. I went to a ballgame the Basketball Philip away at eight hundred pounds. Couldn't even hold it in my hands. I was like I'm out of here the me out of here. You know what I mean. But that was the town you know like everybody had like a plow truck or getting their driveway plowed you know it was like go. Dig It out man. And that's just how he grew up and And so I. I just think that that environment though I think was very helpful in what way because my father I remember. I told him I was going to play music for living He said He said he said good. I think you should do that. But just say no. You're not going to be some lazy ass artists. Yeah you know you're going to work for you at work everybody is. How are you going to do it? I want you think you're she'd be like some kind of in bum. Yeah you know what I mean he said you gotTa go and you've got to work for and you got to work harder than everybody working like. It's a normal job and you really need it because you do because we don't have money. Yeah you know what I mean. Yeah and so and so all that stuff kind of added up for me. I remember when I was about at nine thousand nine hundred eighteen or nineteen years old. Who went down with local garage as we live? Seven tenths of a mile from main street and Cars getting work done and You know we never had any money man. I remember going to the local. Lumber yard falls through lumber I remember when the gowd May of my dad but hey what do I owe you BECO- at such and such I remember. I remember being at that age where I was tall enough to see into my father's wallet but not by much. Yeah I remember. He was set number again and opened up his wallet and he looking at Wallet but he was counting bills. Yeah but there weren't any And I remember seeing in there and I remember thinking we're broke And my father would lean bacne say manage. Don't have that much that much on me right now. Can I pay next? You know next time I see. Oh Yeah Yeah no problem. No problem or this guy. Stevie Levin lived up the road. Yeah no problem. No problem on a lumber yard and I remember one day. We go pick up the car from a local garage. Downtown Frankie shred was his name. Great Guy and My father stops Staus by payoff repair on the car. You know and We leave the garage and we're headed up to his parents. At my parents house. They live about a mile from the garage with about seven tenths of a mile from town. So you know. I grew up near the parents. Neither grandparents I loved the seven tenths of a mile. Though by the way it's so.
"gavin i" Discussed on Pratt Cast
"Bloomberg. Twenty twenty all right welcome back to the wells cast. They're excited about today's. We have gathered gras on the show. You speak now. It's up. Well how are you buddy? Thanks for letting me Chit Chat with. You can talk now you see. Yeah how many kids do you think that you have created not with your own Weiner? But through the Majesty of Song. Not as much as alcohol has done well but hold on alcohol probably is multiplied the earth much more than any given to grow song ever could but I also feel like alcohol and Gavin Gras coming together is a beautiful thing and it's made a lot of terrible kits for his off looking yes. I'm pretty aggravated teachers out there. Probably FROM THAT COMBO. Yeah vicious you did it thank you you made it. I wrote I wrote it for that. Yeah that exact intention wrote what Music chain dead people would procreate and perhaps raise little little hell demons hopefully not healthy. I want to get in your backstory but like yeah. Are you ever write songs? And you're like people are going to definitely have sex to this. You know what's so weird typically that so far removed from my thought. I found that by writing songs. That were Sultry and an emotional and I wouldn't call them necessarily spiritual but but certainly some element of of spirituality that it creates a different sort of listening experience. Yeah I think for people depending upon the songs that you hear that aren't necessarily about A person but there are about feeling yeah and I think sometimes when you when you write music or play music that is about feeling and sensation Can it can create maybe more of that. That mood Without necessarily being really hitting that nail on the head of the Saugus sexy song in order I think songs are sexier when they're when they're not necessarily being so directly about sexuality. I think songs that are about Homo. Emotional connection and In a little bit more Lofty ideas and thoughts are really just so much more sort of accidentally Sexy and sultry and I think those are the songs that are the biggest turn on as a as a listener at least at least for me yeah So some of the music I think was interpreted as being sexy when I when I didn't write it as anything sexy at to be totally honest with you. I think I find funny because like there are different types of art right like if you make a movie about die hard. Then it's about diehard about you know a guy trying to save a building or whatever depending upon the architect he must save a building. You got to save the building. I M Pei gotta say that one but for but for like musicians. It's so personal with the listener because you can write a song that could be about one thing and then a listener can hear it and it could be completely different for them a hundred percent. I remember so I come from a radio background and I was interviewing ban called J. Who has a song called Matilda? Which is my grandmother's name. So I went to him now. It's like Oh my God. Do you guys wrote a song called Matilda I. That's my grandmother's name. I plead that my grandmother's funeral. It means so much to me and they were like. Oh Yeah. That's about the movie the professional which is about like a a hit man. You know that movie. It's a great movie but it has nothing to do with like performance in that movie is amazed diverted but also like has nothing to do with like how wonderful my grandmother is sure. But that's the problem that you run into right like you can be writing things that mean one thing to you and then you have people come up to you and your lying all my God. That thing meant so much to be in New Orleans. That's not even close talking about one hundred percent. Yeah but I also think that that's perfectly accurate but at the same time I think sometimes Actually often I'll write songs that are designed to be interpreted many ways You write it intentionally. Be Safe to be interpreted at least two ways or I'm sorry but we're trying to do is cut. Oh my God you're GonNa be okay. Just just get it out. I love the opportunity to correct user. Change She's crying a little bit listening to some of his. Is that why you're crying? She was like this is such bullshit it makes you sneeze Are you good now or do you need some time to open a window? Would you like ship of water? You want some bud light. Do you want some of Chris? Hairston Seagram escaped tropical Rosa available at all hardware stores. Nationwide every ace hardware. It'd be funny. If he designed to drink you're like this is going global. The only place sound hardware. He's GonNa be drinking out of. Ace Matt the Seltzer depots. Got that good. Should be good. If you don't mind go pick me up. A two by four and some some delicious Seltzer. Adhesive Drywall celts. The fact that I got Gavin. Did this tickled makes me feel really funny. We'll get back to hardware stores. I've forgot but it was very important. Yeah we were talking about how people perceive songs differently than yes. Okay so Tau Artworks COMP- completely. So so yes they do. They they really do. And but here's the thing when you writing the song you're hoping that at least I am. I'm hoping that people will have very personal connection with the song. Somehow there's different ways to go about writing songs right. You can write songs hoping that they'll hear your story Can write songs hoping to speak for their story and and you can also write songs that are so specifically your story that you don't care if they share your story with you you can do that. Approach like you're writing song. You may write a song thinking. Oh this is something. I'm sure they can relate to. Yeah about me for writing on that you think they can relate to about themselves or you're reading some of it so you that they just want a window into your story to know more about your life. Yeah Right. That's like that's like the Woody Allen Approach Right. You're right so specifically your local vibe. That people are like. Wow what's that's what it's like to be a New Yorker in that neighborhood. You know what I mean. It's still woody Allen you know yeah so so I write from different from different angles but depending on the song writing very specifically use. Sometimes you're writing something a little more the`real sometimes you're writing hoping that you're representing them because maybe you've got a few friends who are going through something that similar like you know. You got to three buddies going through something similar at the time to each other. You know what I got her. I saw about this guy like two three people in my life going through this kind of you know I should write something about that but then of course some real come up to you and say okay. I heard that song. Whatever that saw may be and One day I wrote the song about this this woman and came to me and they said to me. Wow your song. Insert the name here. The way you're talking to God and my Denna fine with that relationship with God and it's so intimate I too have felt that way and I I said to them said you know I'm really happy. You're telling me that because I up until now that song was only between me and someone but you make me feel like messages much bigger than I had even thought thought of I couldn't i. I wasn't thinking that big at that time. Yeah but from that point on the song took on a larger meaning to me Ironically and it was the first time and the only time our song interpreted in a way that made the song more meaningful to me than when I had written it for myself. Yes so that that thing re identified itself to you. What percent do you have a fan thinking bigger about the song than I had? Yeah you know what I mean. There's a bigger picture and heavy. I played how that's how parents feel about you a lot like they think so much bigger of you than you do. And then they'll talk to you and you'd be like Oh. Yeah that's you're right. That's what I was thinking I guess my next question is of the three modes of transportation in terms of songwriting. Do you have a favorite Writing a song for a thing that you're seeing outside of Your friend group. Whatever a thing that's happening to you personally or a message that you wanted to portray or of those three of those three things that you kind of mentioned. Do you have a preferred method of writing for me? I like to write about. I try to find something that allows me to really identify myself. And then the tune First Person Yeah and then Be Very specific and highly ambiguous at the same time so that they can interpret it or misinterpreted. Yeah for their own life Specific in general. It's very peculiar way to go back. I guess it'd be a hard tight rope to walk too tough one. You know I don't want to just every time. Just tell a story. Yeah Tom Walk to the store. The store was closed so then he went to the park. That's where he met a lady name. I don't really do that. Type OF SAMBRE ACE hardware. And that's where he the Seltzer exactly so anyway. I like to blend a lot of things because I grew up in a very religious household I like to to allude to something that isn't necessarily just me and her but rather something me and and this like God thing. Yeah you know but that doesn't have to be interpreted as a god thing could be relationship with with a human or with something bigger than us as a species you know. Yeah and and and Oftentimes like to leave out the love interest element of things. I just try to create a relationship. Element OF THINKS. See rather than just being interpersonal. It can be you know looking for something that's grander Than just you on your own. So could be. It's not necessarily religious Shirley just personal. It could be one of those things. It's just something that's about about a meaning of having a relationship something that means a lot to you and that could be interpreted as a woman your love with a partner or something bigger than us as human race and so it may sound silly. I think but Some songs I take that I take that approach also. I like to read a lot of identity song because I like to write songs at Point out failure or Point out where I lack but also point out that there's there are other things out there or someone else out there that makes up for where I you know m Where I fall short. Yeah and and I think that we all fall short somewhere and songwriter. I don't think it's necessary to just paint yourself out to be triumphant about every element of your life simply disingenuous. So a lot of people can identify with the reality of needing help or needing someone else or or at least appreciating help from someone else or interest from someone else who wants to be in your life to take you to another level in your life and your whether it be in your love. Life for your spirituality or or or or you level of success or failure or at least looking past your failures to find the part of you that they think is special. That doesn't matter if you're if you're doing well or not they. They're proud of you for even make the attempt so. I do not take a lot of different approaches with with songwriting. I think it's important to explore a lot of those this parts of of yourself as a as a songwriter and also to expose your vulnerabilities as rider Yet at the same time to not be afraid of your alter egos as a songwriter Because we all have alter egos and so I'll also point out that as a songwriter when you're also the artist and the songwriter. Oftentimes you're held accountable for whatever the material is that you're writing or whatever materials that you're playing so if I wrote a song about an alter ego right Sometimes you worried as the writer of the artist to be held accountable for the material. If it doesn't suit the other material that they'd heard I right so for example if I write a song about my humility or my weakness on earlier record and then two or three records later I read a song about. My confidence may say will elected better when you're humble but you're saying you're still humble you just expressing a moment of confidence in this other tune just to celebrate things being good for you Your life going well and so you know. For example. I wrote a song called leading man you know. I wanted to write a song that made people feel like you know like the head swagger in a and you know as open line was like a walking like a fistful about a rockets..
"gavin i" Discussed on How Men Think with Brooks Laich & Gavin DeGraw
