See the Music: Greg Holden, "I Need an Energy"

Greg Holden sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for the latest installment of our exclusive See the Music series. Holden broke it down for us, sharing the deeper meaning behind his crazy catchy song "I Need an Energy," which appears on the Chasing Mavericks soundtrack.
Holden said, "I had lost the excitement and energy that comes with being a musician and chasing a dream." He needed an energy or some drive or boost in order to want to do it again. It was almost a cry for help to make him realize why he made such great sacrifices to pursue a career in a tough business like music and entertainment!
Holden shed a little light on the songwriting process itself, saying that he normally does lyrics first, but for "I Need an Energy," he did production and lyrics concurrently, making it a special track.
The song also sat on the shelf for a bit, and he revisited it six months later, discovering the gem that it is! Serendipitous, you might say.
