Interview with Brady Lee on New Pop-Country Single "I Can Do This All Day"
Music Update Central: Your single dropped this past Friday Brady. How did you feel to have a debut single Hot Tracks and other playlists?
Brady Lee:That was a crazy feeling. Honestly, I just felt thankful. We put in a lot of work, and
for people to take notice and love the new sound was so special. It’s always a
little nervous to release, because you never know if people are going to like it,
want it, listen to it, whatever. But it really struck a chord with people, and I’m glad.
I want to be the guy that sings the song people need to hear, when they need to
hear it, and I think we nailed it this time.
MUC: What was the inspiration for this song?
BL: I was watching Captain America on quarantine, and in one of the very first
scenes Steve Rogers is outside getting absolutely beat up. But he stands up one
more time, puts his fists up and says, “I can do this all day.” I thought about the
current condition of our communities and nations, and how we’ve all been placed
on lockdown and quarantine. Honestly, the response I’ve seen from communities
is one of resiliency. I’m inspired by humanity's resilience; we went through social
distance, quarantine, reopening, phase regression, all of it, and we’re still
swinging. First responders stood up, teachers put their boxing gloves on, social
justice workers raised their voices, small business owners got creative, we saw it
all. I wanted to write a song about all this, but have it be a song that brings some
lighthearted joy to the world. A lot of us have forgotten how to smile, and I hope
this song helps people remember.
MUC: Name three things you can do all day!
BL: See, this is a really easy question for me; not because I’m very self aware of
anything, but simply because I don’t do much. So number one, I can write music
all day. ALL DAY. Writing it, playing it, all of it, all day. Any of my friends will
attest to this; music is my job, career, passion, and hobby. I love it and can’t get
enough of it. I can also drink coffee all day. I don’t even have to think about it. In
fact, I need to actively think about NOT doing that. You don’t even want to know
how much money I spend on coffee every month. Lastly, I can binge watch netflix
with my wife all day, but it’s more of an evening thing I guess... But lately it feels
like we either watch one episode of our favorite show, which is a toss up between
New Girl and Brooklyn Nine Nine by the way, or we watch 12. There’s no in
between on that.
MUC: What is coming up next? Are you releasing a video or another song project?
BL: Well, my team did a really great job working with me on the debut release, and
we kind of prepped a lot of different avenues depending on how the first song
performed. We were poised to head in any direction, which was a lot of work, but
a lot of good work. We’re working on releasing a video to go along with I Can Do
This All Day toward the end of the year, and we’ve got a second song ready to
drop to kick off 2021 that I CANNOT wait to share!
