It might be a huge hit, it might not; but you learn something doing it.
I don't necessarily want people to know all my intimate feelings about Tracey.
I could easily not be the person that people know.
When I was in top 40 bands, I always had to learn new material and new styles.
There's artists that I'm working with on a new label of mine. Foxy Nova and Supa Nova.
I still write the same way and have the same perspective.
I don't go to that many Broadway shows, so I can't really say anything.
I would say that I've been lucky. Being blessed and not really ever giving up.
I'm continuing to produce and will start a new record soon, as well.
The Internet is a whole new world opening up.

But a lot of the old fans are listening to a lot of the younger music. So I gotta keep moving forward, and they'll move forward too.
I enjoy music that is commercial.
