During the interview When asked why it took him so long to put out a full body of work, the singer said;
“I’m a perfectionist, which is both a blessing and a curse; the blessing being that the quality of my music always stays there, but at the same time, people don’t need too much to impress them. The kind of ears artists would listen to music [with] is different from the ears the average audience would use.”
Johnny was questioned why he named his album “Before We Fall Asleep” He said:
So Before We Fall Asleep can be paraphrased to mean “Before we run out of time.” I wanted to play on that in the sense of running out of time and doing all the important things you need to do while you still can.
