Having faith in the people in one’s life and in the life we’ve chosen—not always easy to do. What were some of the fine points of precision that lent inspiration to this song?
Mid Dream – Mike Sempert | Shazam
With the learnings from the s album rock gods of perpetual legend, Mike takes to the studio as his canvas to convey a pop arc of personal experience and testimony. Mike Sempert, hanging solo. I felt as though I wasn’t holding it quite as tightly, that I could let go a little more.
It wasn’t that different, maybe a little easier. Any time you go somewhere new, there’s a nice burst of new material that comes out of that. It’s hard to say at this point. Do you find the LA area more conducive for album pop compositions?
There was something exciting and anthemic about it, so the lyrics were informed by that feeling. I compose music in some capacity, on a weekly basis, even if its just a sketch.
It was nice to start from the beginning in a way, with this album. There’s certainly a gospel influence, but I’m singing libe love instead of religious faith, not that they’re mutually exclusive. I haven’t noticed that yet. That song started with the Rhodes loop and then the bass movement underneath it. That’s important to my process, some riding of the waves.
And in general, it just felt like more of a low-pressure album, which yielded something unexpected. That honeymoon has tapered off, so I guess time will tell. How have you found the transitional process of moving between the Bay Area to Los Angeles has affected your own songwriting and personal approach to music and general creativity?
This was my first record with Colin Fahrner on drums, and his feel and vibe is so good, it created a perfect foundation.

So what are you waiting for? These three dudes were easy to trust and it made everything easier. This song has no chorus, and I recently realized how only a few songs on Mid Dream actually follow that basic rule of songwriting! Blake Henderson Taughtme recorded all the vocals and a lot of the overdubs for the record, and he became a true confidant in the process.
But this wasn’t planned.
Mike Sempert, “Finest Line”
If you have attempted to follow the highs, lows, ups, and downs of the Bay Area’s music culture, then surely Mike Sempert and affiliates have become a household name by now. Any time you make something, there’s a dance between being in control of what you make and being lune of control.
I do feel inspired by the existence of a music industry here. Pop music has always been a part of the way I think about making music, but so is the feeling of creative freedom, that whatever feels right and whatever works, do that.
A story song that chronicles getting lost, surviving life’s swells, and tight commitments marches with a praise prepared to close out festival stages galore.
