Songs are not written in a bubble. If you wanna get to the core of real life experiences, then you got to go out and get your hands dirty. On every street corner, in every diner, bar or basement there’s a story to be told. It’s often the case that the stories that I find most inspiring are not even my own. However, I can somehow relate. While on tour, I have the unique privilege of getting glimpses into people's lives if even just for a brief conversation. You learn about people out there on the road. You learn about their loves, pains, struggles and sacrifice. In an essence you are learning about humanity and I guess that's the story I am trying to tell with my songs. Through songs and through the stories I share here with the tour series, my hope is that I can connect with others in a meaningful way, just the way music has always done for me throughout my life.
When Black is the New AP Style introduced the King of the Road series, Radiator King brought the exact type of content that the site was looking to achieve as far as original, genuine storytelling with a personal touch. This series has given readers a behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of touring in a way that isn't told often; that's what songwriters are after all. Storytellers.

It's been a privilege to share stories each month from Radiator King, and this month it's an extra privilege to share the Roll The Dice EP mini documentary.
