The Next Album: While On Tour, The GroovaLottos Start The Process For Their Sophomore Project
As The Phunk Hits 2018 tour rolls into full stream mode, The GroovaLottos add new songs to their set lists, trying out material for their next album and discuss the process that led to making a 4-time Grammy nominated debut album.
"The people coming to hear us in the clubs and at shows are mainly the ones buying our CDs," added GroovaLottos drummer, Eddie Ray Johnson, "we see how folks react to a song as well as how it feels playing it. If it works, I see Mwalim whip out his phone and record what we're doing for future use. This was how we settle on an arrangement for 'Do You Mind (IfWeDanceWitYoDates)?"
"Do You Mind...?" was the band's debut single and spent 41 weeks in the top ten of the Americana/Indie Blues Charts almost a year before the release of their multi-Grammy nominated album, "Ask Yo' Mama". Time on the road, and new interactions with new audiences will likely yield another hit album for the band. The ZYG 808 is using a similar method to developing his debut solo album while touring with the band.
