Roderick explained the importance of storytelling in his life and songs, but added that he’s been trying to alter the way he writes songs recently and has gotten “lost in the woods of infinite possibility.”
“I use storytelling to fictionalize and scramble the real events of my life, so that other people can hopefully identify with the universality of the feelings. But lately I’ve wanted to be more specific, to talk about real events. That’s hard for me to do, or to do well, so I’m searching,” Roderick said.
