Welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Thank you so much for the welcome. I am so glad to be a part of this opportunity. I have been really good. I’ve just been completely working and staying calm during this pandemic time. Although, it’s been a great time to write songs.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single, “Good Luvin”?
So Good Lovin was originated from my latest girlfriend. When we first met, she was very skeptical about dating because of how our lives were. We were in two different states which caused her to doubt us and how we could work. Within this time, I had to convince her that I don’t mind the time, I know this can work. So let’s have a good time with this relationship because I know this can last.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Well after the incident with my girlfriend, I realized that so many other individuals were experiencing he same issue. In our relationships I believe we worry too much about the future and how were going to make it. I think we should worry about the now and how we can make it work now because tomorrow is not promised at all to us. So that’s why I say “I don’t mind the time” in my song. It creates an atmosphere of wanting to not worrying about anything but just making sure the love is being presented in the relationship.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording process was pretty simple. When I wrote this song, I already had a lot of things processing of how I was going to write it. I just needed assistance portraying the lyrics correctly. I called one of my favorite songwriters Jacob Frish to jump on in looking at the lyrics. We finished the song within an hour and a half.
What else is happening next in Tae Lewis?
Right now, I have some shows lined up to perform with my band at once the pandemic is over as well as getting ready to drop my EP in the late fall or early January.
What role does New York play in your music world?
New York has played a vital role in my upbringing for country music. When I began the journey towards country music, I had many doubts that I wouldn’t be welcomed due to not being the typical country singer that is displayed in our culture. The more I began to get booked for shows, I realized that people welcomed me not only because I could sing but because I was different than any other country singer they have seen which draws them to listen to me more.
