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!)

Acoustic Session: Danny Gokey Sings “Haven’t Seen It Yet”

While Danny Gokey served up two versions of his lead single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet’ on his new album, we wish this rich, acoustic version was also included!

In this video, Danny’s guitarist Miguel Perez, pianist Sam Montanez, and three background singers perform a stirring version. I love the whole thing, but those background singers are impressive!

Update – We were happy to see this as we very much enjoyed the vocal performances in the new acoustic video. All of the three background singers posted to their instagram highlighting their performances. Their names are Bethany Cruz, Terrell Hunt and Sharlisa Brooks. Bethany is credited as a background vocalist in the recorded track for Have You Seen It yet, according to the album notes.

Video and Lyrics: Wanted

Danny Gokey promo for Wanted

With the third song available from his upcoming album Haven’t Seen It Yet, we have “Wanted”. Here is what Danny says about this new song: (Available now HERE.)

“This song means a lot to me because it was written from God’s perspective to those who have been hurt by so many things in life that they couldn’t control and as a result, they feel lost, damaged or unworthy. If this is you, the Father has your heart and he wants to restore it! His love goes so far beyond what you can imagine and he wants you to know that you ARE wanted! I pray that message sinks deep into the hearts of those who are hurting.”

“Wanted” Continue reading “Video and Lyrics: Wanted”
