TMP’s *PICK* from the Corey Hunt Band’s EP North of Low Water has hit radio and we just had to gather more details behind the jam “I’m Doing Fine”!
Written by Hunt (and fittingly) with some help from his wife Hannah, this track is unlike Hunt’s other songs, which usually have an exact story behind them, Hunt says. Instead, this one is a culmination of old relationships and his reflections on where he was and where he might have been. Hunt recently shared with TMP, “…it’s an ode to every girl that’s broken up with me”, also mentioning that this track is also his favorite on the EP.
Hunt’s influenced by favorite songwriters such as Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty but digs the styles of Chris Knight and Robert Earl Keen. Together, those musical influences help Hunt take his “simple, folk, country songs” and add fun flares of rock and roll (this is where drummer Eric Wise comes in!). “I’m Doing Fine” is a perfect example of this combination mixed with the band’s talent. The track’s lyrics are empowering and uplifting and the band’s rock and roll attitude make it for a fun jam to turn all the way up and sing along to.
In addition to the band’s refreshing sound, it was also music to my ears to hear Hunt say that Texas is the band’s favorite place to play and they would play here every weekend if they could. I, myself cannot wait to catch these tunes live! The band has a handful of Texas of dates lined up and here’s the icing on the cake…Hunt shared, he also took a different approach with the entire EP’s songwriting in that he really focused on keeping the band’s show in mind and therefore plays every single track from the EP for show attendees.
Similar to “Wild Heart Gypsy”, the first track released from the EP, “I’m Doing Fine” will be another fan favorite and we can’t wait for even more from the Corey Hunt Band!
