INTERVIEW: Gerry Liberty

Hi Gerry, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

I’m incredibly well thanks.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Boom Boom”?

‘Boom Boom’… It’s a song about having fun, testing the water, playing the field… you know.

Everybody’s had a ‘Boom Boom’ night or thinking about there next one. It should be mandatory. Helps one blow off some steam I guess…

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

Not so much a specific event. Most definitely a series of events, combined with stories told by friends I met on my journey.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Yes we are releasing a vid really soon. Going to be so ‘Boom Boom’. We drew a lot of inspiration from 90’s Hip Hop when putting the concept together.It’s being edited as we speak.

How was the recording and writing process?

The song was recorded in no time. Everybody body was super focused and creativity was flowing. Fred den Hartog(Producer) and Dane Taylor(Prod/Mixing Engineer) co wrote Boom Boom with me. Most of the song was done before I took it to the them. They made some changes that gave the song the kind of legs that can pull off a really short skirt…

How has John Mayer and Paulo Nutini influenced your writing?

Both John and Paolo combine old & new school so well. Unique voices, excellent musicianship and kickass live shows.

What is it about the 70s that you find so fascinating?

The 70’s welcomed experimentation, musically. Recording budgets were huge and moustaches were perfected. Many genres made it to the charts..disco, funk, rock, reggae.

Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?

You can definitely expect a album. Not sure about the date yet but sooner than later. It’s almost finished.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Will break the news on social media as soon as we’ve decided on a date followed by the title…

Any plans to hit the road?

Most definitely a tour. That’s why I play music… To go out there and there your songs with the people. See how they drop their asses on big fat beats’ haha.

What else is happening next in Gerry Liberty’s world?

Release after release I’d say… The immediate move is get the vid out for ‘Boom Boom’, get the band ready and get banging with the next release.
