Candlebox’s Kevin Martin: ‘I probably don’t deserve the success I’ve had’

Kevin Martin from Candle Books:

In a recent interview with Darren Baltroitz, host of “Paltrocast with Darren Paltroitz”And candle‘s Kevin Martin He was asked if he is the type of artist who works on music every day. Answered (as written by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “No, man. I’m not very prolific at all. I probably don’t deserve the success I’ve had. [Laughs] I don’t work hard at it. And that’s a terrible thing to say, because when I’m in the studio, I do. But I don’t look at music that way. I don’t have that desire. I think maybe it stopped… when I met my wife Natalie When I lost that kind of drive to just produce music every day. I fell madly in love, and still am. So I guess I’d rather hang out with my wife and son and go to the beach and vacation than write a song. I just don’t find writing helps me with that. Unless I’m in the Mood – If I’m in the mood to write, I’ll be producing two or three songs in an hour. As at soundcheck that day, we wrote three things. But that’s only if I run into it. I don’t sit with the guitar all day, writing lyrics on a notepad. I just wasn’t that guy before. I do not know why. I’m just not.”

when Troitz I brought DEATH FOR CUTIE‘s Ben Gibbard, who is quoted as saying that he treats songwriting as a day job, Martin He said, “I was a drummer for years and years and years before I sang to it candle. And what I find is that I don’t like reaching for inspiration that way. I let her punch me in the face pretty much, and then I realized: “Oh, that’s a song.” I’m just not that person. And The son of‘Sa deeply Prolific motherfucker. I have every record this guy released. I’m a big fan. I love that he treats it like a day job because I always get new music from him. But one of the things that I think happens about it is that sometimes, that’s my opinion, you can overlook what you’re writing about. If you’re constantly searching for something, looking for a story, or trying to write about an experience you’ve had, sometimes I think that’s forcing it. And again, that’s just my opinion of things. I don’t make records until I am completely ready to make records, until I am completely ready to say something. And that’s just me. I think musicians who can produce at a Ben level, I mean, it’s shocking to me, but it’s still great that there are musicians that do. I am not one of them. “

candlehis last album, “Wolves”, was released in September via paving records. LP was produced by Hana Dean in the legendary Henson Studios in Los Angeles, California. It’s Seattle-based rock’s follow-up to 2016 “Disappearing at airports”.
