"gerg gerg" Discussed on World Cafe

"Here on the World Cafe absolutely beautiful Jimmy Toner with shoulders from the debut album. Gird I'm my name's Kallio I'm the host of or one of the hosts of World Cafe and someone who works in entertainment right so for many years. I did not go by my last name. Which is Kalaheo And I can appreciate a musician that has stage name so for several years. People knew your music but they didn't know your name and that was by design correct. Yes tell me a little bit about a kid up. Oh and why it was chosen not a stage name but actually more sort of like a barrier to Jonah over for Sir. I think it was always music's always such a great outlet to me that it didn't seem I think at one point never seemed like I'd really be able to do it professionally and and at the same time. A lot of my friends did no I was doing it and it was just something so personal. I didn't really grow up having a lot of creative friends You know all my friends growing up. Or they're all accountants. Now they work in development and that sort of thing so as always quite a secret thing and so being out in public Putting out music kind of felt maybe embarrassing. I had a couple of friends that played instruments and I sang a lot of opera secondary school. Which is you know what it is. But it's also quite an elite level of this a niche thing and actually a couple of my friends who I grew up with. Ended up doing that. But you're seeing someone else's music and it's quite a small little bubble to like actually write your own music. Wow Is One of those things I feel like. I played a couple of my own songs and secondary school to a couple of people and it was always. It always felt like as far as quite an impostor. What are you doing writing songs into you? Know Wow so it was being you not being an impostor at all but you end but at a certain point you decided you're okay with putting this music out but you're going to do it under a different name. Yes I said. This is the obvious question what what was the what was the watershed moment where you decided that you know. The songs are not coming from Connecticut. But they're coming from Jonah and they and you need to know they're gonNA come Jona. I feel like at a certain point when enough music it come on. I was kind of use yet to the idea of it. I thought you know it is it is it is coming from me and I want people to know who I am because it would provide some context and I think what I love most about the the artists I love and grew up with is that they have the name out there. When you really WANNA find out about us on you kind of find out about it through the context of their life and what they're going through and I wanted there to be a person behind the music you're listening to World Cafe. We're here with John McDonough. Be Debut. Album IS GREG so debut album Gerg Gerg. You think that it's just it's a sound but for me. It reminds me of my childhood because one of my good friends. His nickname was Gert Because Gerg is greg backwards exactly So who's Greg who's Greg who's who's Gerke then WHO's Greg? Greg is somebody that I dated who? I didn't want anybody to know about no way. Yeah so I saved them in my phone as Gerke so that anybody who picked up my phone because pretty loose with my phone like anyone can really look into if they want to. So if they ever looked in the Gerber and they'd be like Oh this is like who could this possibly be like. It's probably just a friend or whatever this like not and it and it worked for the most part so it was because you didn't want them to know you had a partner or yeah I guess so I guess so. I think it's like one of those things where I grew up. Very religiously and A lot of my friends are still in that community and so when I went back to England in two thousand seventeen just went straight back into the community and that was It was kind of I was I was exploring was exploring and I kind of wanted to do it without the the eyes of all the people that have known me since childhood or whatever you're listening to the World Cafe we're here with Joe Montana on on what is really interesting session and I really appreciate your honesty and your candor. Nineteen forty nine. That's an interesting title for a song. It was a very good year. I don't know I wasn't I wasn't there so I set us up. Set THIS UP FOR US. Would you please? Nineteen forty nine is a year. That was a a big baby. Boom era lots of babies are being born on the minute. Come home from war and I feel like if you see pictures of couples from nineteen forty nine. It's all very like a very traditional love. You GET MARRIED. You have kids very traditionally speaking and I wrote this song for my friend's wedding very Sarcastically I feel in terms of dislike. I want I want to write them on that. I can play the wedding but I make sure if feels like it feels like me and then I feel like after written it for this wedding and then I fell in love myself I was like Oh actually I feel like this is accurate and I hit the nail on that cool. Let's hear it..
