Little Mama was written because I wanted a song that was colorful and quirky with just a touch of steaminess. This song in particular, versus others I have written, really paints a fun/weird picture (i.e. - referring to a girl as a glass ball chandelier) and it’s also been a wonderful song to have a crowd sing back too. I wrote this song last summer with Matt Dragstrem and Mike Shimshack originally for my first full-length record but, unfortunately and fortunately, there was so many other great songs it didn’t make the record.
Being a “human” will always come with certain responsibilities and expectations and that’s scary. In a certain sense, we are all expected to be a certain version of perfect. That’s why I wrote this song. Even though we are supposed to be allowed to make a few mistakes people, often times, have a preconceived idea of what kind of mistakes we are allowed to make according to the type of human being we are. However, it’s hard for us all to live in a world where we are living through comparison of others. So I wrote this song human to help console me in those times because, as cynical as it sounds, it will always be this way. It’s nature. So at the end of the day, it’s what you think of yourself that matters the most. Be your own human.
