White Collar Grunge discusses new single ‘Capitulation’
The idea for the song Capitulation came about when the stock market tanked in March 2020. I was hearing the word a lot in the media and my father-in-law kept saying it as well. It seemed like an original lyric idea. I was already working on the music at the time and the rest of the song flowed pretty quickly from there. Prior to writing Capitulation, I already had the basic concepts for most of the songs that ended up on the record at varying stages of completion. I will typically sit with the music for a while, come up with vocal melodies while jamming over the tracks and eventually get to writing the lyrics. In August I booked the studio time for November to do the drums and vocals. It really helped motivate me to finish the songs.
White Collar Grunge discusses single ‘Second Miracle’
I started writing the music to Second Miracle in the hospital on my laptop after my second child Theo was born in May 2020. He was a big inspiration in getting this album done. After Theo was born I came to realize that there was never going to be a “good” time for me to make a record. I didn’t want to reflect on my life later with regret.

At the time I had thought it might be a good name for my project and after writing Capitulation I became sold on it.
