The Story Behind “Better Now”
A few years ago I sang on a song called “Nothing To Loose”, written by NYC filmmaker John Sanvidge and composer Jack Walker for John’s first film of the series “Finding Seoul”; a powerful documentary focused on John’s personal quest to find his biological parents in Seoul, Korea. The film did wonderfully, showcasing in multiple film festivals and the song we recorded ended up as the ending credits track.
In the fall of 2013, John sent me a poem he’d written on the road asking if I could write music to it for his upcoming sequel film. We recorded an acoustic track entitled “Better Now”, which was supposed to only be the ending credits track to the new film, but after letting friends and family listen to the song, the positive reviews were too much to ignore. When you’ve got a good thing, you’ve got to run with it!
