Having found a new home in “Tantric” has reinvigorated my need to be creative again, being a part of a “band”, vs. being more of a “hired gun”. I like both roles for different reasons, but when you’re a kid, you want to be in a “band”… not necessarily just the hired guy. I’m stoked to have a new album out in this day and age with a band of guys I really love, and despite the fact Tantric has nearly a 2 decade history, it sort of feels brand new again…
