Spencer Martin comments on “I’m Fine”
“I’m Fine was written during a 3 day snow storm where I was able to put together a song that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt the weight of isolation. The song also deals with my coping of missing home and a life that no longer exists.”
“For me personally, it is a reminder that feeling and showing that you are vulnerable is a good thing and all part of growing as a person. Musically, it’s outside my comfort zone.”
“Combining some modern pop elements to a more comfortable Rock based sound that I’m more familiar with as well as arranging all the instruments. When in a band setting you are responsible for your own parts. This was a refreshing but challenging new approach.”
