MacPherson welcomes change
“I’ve been on G7 for 7 years—it’s been a long time,” he says. “I’ve got nothing but respect for the label, but I thought it might be better esthetically to find a label with bands that sound more like me. I’ve played a lot of hardcore shows [while touring with G7 bands] and I’m not very hardcore.”
According to MacPherson, his decision to leave G7 was based on a desire to get his message out to more people than he can on his current label.
“I’m over 30 now, and it’d be nice to feel that I pushed my music as far as it would go,” he says. “I’m not talking about dollars and cents either—I’m talking about bringing it to the most people I can and I haven’t done that yet.”
That being said, die-hards and the ever welcome new fans should have
something to look forward to very soon as MacPherson plans on beginning the
recording process as soon as he gets home from the tour he’s currently
on. MacPherson’s process is a little longer than everyone
“It takes me a long time to make a record—it’s a lot of work,” he says. “But I’ve got about 25 songs written—enough for two whole records. I think they’re my best songs yet and I’m really excited to record them.” V
