The title “Told You So” came to me when I was thinking about how to finish this album.
I knew the title was great, but creating a song that was fun, sassy, but not too juvenile was my main goal. I wanted to say what we’ve all thought at one point or another. So I had the title; “Told You So”, but I was on the road going from gig to gig. I find a spare moment to couldn’t sit down and finish the song. Between rehearsals, learning new songs for the set, interviews, meetings, and then planning the next shows, interviews, meetings, etc. time was tight.
So one day as we were driving from one venue to the next I thought, “I’m not going to be able to write this song if I don’t just do it while I’m on the road.” So I did. I worked out the of “Told You So” lyrics and then got my guitar out and figured out the music. Because the title had been rolling around in my head for a few months already, the lyrics were there and waiting to come out. I knew what I wanted to say and I just put my thoughts down to music. After about an hour I had “Told You So” pretty much finished and it stayed pretty much the same all the way up to being recorded, so what you’ll hear on March 2, 2018 is very close to what I wrote all those months ago.
