What was your inspiration for writing “Mine?”
Clinton Green and I wrote this song after just sitting down and talking about life.
How did you come up with the concept for writing “Mine?”
We concluded that we should write a song about young men having the confidence or wishing they had the confidence to purse their first crush.
What were some of the most memorable aspects of recording your single?
My most memorable aspect of the video was the day the video was shot. We arrived at Audiostate 55 at 6 am, met the dancers and they were really cool guys. We then started rehearsing the moves. At that point, I said to myself: this is happening.
Do you have a band that you worked with on the single, and if so, what was it like to work with them?
I did not have a band. But I imagine that if I get a chance to perform “Mine” with a band, I would have as much fun as I had with Clint, James, Danny, and Dr. Panion in the studio.
How did Audiostate 55 Entertainment Company help/inspire you throughout the process?
Well Audiostate did not inspire me as much as Dr. Panion did. Dr. Panion confirmed that I CAN SING. Dr. Panion and the Video Director Brandon Mason came up with the storyline for the video.
What advice can you share with other students who are interested in releasing a single?
Find your Dr. Henry Panion! Birmingham has a great musical community. I would recommend to any young person to find a successful musician and ask them to listen to you. Once you have been heard, listen to their feedback and follow their advice.
