Hey corey! I’ve been listening to your music for some time now and all of your songs have so much depth that sometimes I can hardly even understand. Recently, music in general is just written to make money but yours is so much more than that and I truly appreciate it for everything it is. That being said I have a couple random and unrelated questions for you.
1. You’ve commented on Christianity in most of your songs and said that you have kind of abandoned the ritual parts of it but I guess I was wondering if you still believe that God is there and if you still follow him?
2. What exactly is the meaning behind ‘Whale Song’? Very beautiful, but very deep.
3. The end of ‘Rosanna’ there is a young man talking and I’ve listened to it so many times, I think I memorized it, I was wondering if it was the Joseph mentioned in the song? If this is too personal it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it. Totally understand
4. How old are you?
Nah I'm only in this for the cash!
Kidding of course. Yeah I don't really consider myself a "christian" these days. It's been a long journey to even be able to say that, but the more I've abandoned the titles and the organization of spirituality, the more I've been able to experience it. I read a lot, I'm even reading a book by a Christian Mystic right now hoping to rebuild a more concrete understanding, but for now I find a lot of peace looking for God outside of any specific church.
I think Whale Song is a little all over the place, Its kind of a break up song with a lot of cosmic undertones and comments on timing and stuff.
3. Was just talking about this with one of my best buds (we met through Joe). It is his voice. Its a goodnight voicememo he left to an old girlfriend before he passed. He was just talking about going on a trip someday and I loved the casualness of it. That song is immensely personal and I truly miss him so much, but sharing helps the grief.
I'm 23 :)
