Gretchen Peters has us Dancing with the Beast

I sat down with Chuck Dauphin recently to talk about Dancing With The Beast, songs and songwriting. The interview at Music Update Central has just been published.

“I have very distinct and vivid memories of being fourteen and fifteen years old and just the awakening and awareness that happens. Being with my friends, teenage girls, and this kind of disorienting competition that gets set up. I think for girls it’s a treacherous time of adolescence I really wanted to write something about that because I remember feeling like the ground was shifting under me and feeling that my friends were in competition for boys, and why did I feel suddenly as though I was being judged externally rather than internally. What was all that about? When you’re fourteen and fifteen old, that’s hard stuff to figure out.”
