[su_quote]My goal for this album was simply to write original songs that felt good and had a positive vibe,” Bouchard tells P&P. “The world needed a ‘pick me up’ after being locked down for the pandemic. As the recordings progressed, I found the theme revolved around my life as an up-and-coming rock star in the 1970s. It was a thrilling time to be alive, and with my old band we created some exceptional lasting music. … I’m really excited for the album release, and I think people will respond to it in a very positive way.[/su_quote]
