Q&A:


1.    Hi Seth, how have you grown as a country singer in 2019?
I have really enjoyed working on continually improving my live performance. I feel I’ve grown in so many ways. Learning how to connect to an audience of all ages is a challenge, but I have really loved getting to see the connection grow from show to show.  I love watching fans dance to my music!

2.    How did you come up with the name of your brand new single “Slippin?”
One of the cowriters on the song threw out the idea. Then we worked on hooking it the right way and the song was written pretty fast. One of my favorite writes. I think there are influences you hear in it from many different genres. I love listening to a wide range of music and try and incorporate ideas into everything I work on. It is a really fun song and I hope everybody digs it!

3.    What is the background story behind your new single?
The story behind “Slippin’” is pretty much just not wanting to admit to someone you’re crushing hard for them lol. But deep down you’re having all the feels. 

4.    What was your process in creating this song?
The process for recording my music is always changing, but recently I’ve started building a demo of the song at my home studio. Build the track and create a vibe that i’m feeling for it.  I’m super lucky to have a great friend and producer Matt McClure that knows how to embellish my ideas and fine tune them. Also, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the song. The two of us working together is something I feel is really special.

5.    Is there something you wish your fans would take away from your single?
My goal with my music is to bring some fun to peoples day.  I love dance music and light hearted poppy lyrics and melodies. I want people to feel good listening to it. My favorite music brings a ton of positivity to my life. I wanna do the same for other people with my music.

6.    Was there any other artists or producers that helped to create this song?
Touched on this earlier. My cowriters were Matt McClure, Marty Dodson, and Zarni De Vette. Loved writing this with them. Always a fun collaboration. And great people. 

7.    Is there anything else coming up with your music in 2019?
I’m very excited to be touring the country performing and continuing to release new music to my fans. You can keep up with me at Sethcookmusic.com or @SethCookMusic on all social media platforms.
