John Vesely of Secondhand Serenade

August 26, 2010 by  
Filed under Interviews

On his latest release Hear Me Now, John Vesely, the man behind the Secondhand Serenade curtain, pushed himself harder than he ever had before to make a record that he strongly stands behind.  Fans that have followed Secondhand Serenade from day one know that Vesely wears his heart on his sleeve, it’s that vulnerability that has undoubtedly drawn in his rabid fan base who relate to his deeply personal lyrics that easily translate. His songs have weaved intricate tales of life’s greatest personal struggles both through agony and defeat as well as success and enlightenment – a true lyrical journeyman.

Vesely’s musicianship has always been at the top of his game however there is a notable growth in the songwriting on Hear Me Now.  The richer arrangements and powerful vocals are a clear shining point throughout.  Vesely also takes a stab at producing on a few of the tracks as well rounding out the album perfectly.

Hear Me Now has an overall theme of finding closure and moving on and the songs flow fluidly from start to finish.  The first single “Something More” shows the progression of his sound with additional elements introduced and a smooth blend of pop meets rock with the signature Secondhand Serenade emotive lyrics that we’ve come to know and love.

We recently talked to John about the honesty of his new album, his growth as a songwriter and what he hopes music fans will take from his latest collection of work.
