Songwriting, Producing, Touring & More with Danny Gokey

Interview with Sweetwater

Danny Gokey talks about his new album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”, his writing process, his experience with his music contracts, writing, producing the songs and how he sets his live shows.  He also talks about

  • What he looks for in his musicians for his tour  (he wants his musicians to be “buttery”.)
  • Celebrating others’ talents.
  • Finally, what he means when he says, “He’s not where I should be, but I’m not where I was.”

The best thing I heard is it that he would like to.” add background singers to his live shows!  (I loved how he added horns the last couple of years!)
