Confessional with Bad Saint - 2/4/19


It's Monday and that means it's time for Confessional with Bad Saint! Every week Bad Saint will be taking your musical questions, confessions, and/or settling your debates. We have a great batch of questions this week from the public. If you would like to submit a question for Bad Saint, send an email to With that, let's get to your questions!

Hey Bad Saint,

Loved your new track "Cover Your Shift" can you tell us a little bit about the writing and recording process of this sick jam?

-Bradley from Texas

Bad Saint: Well, I’m Jewish and when you’re Jewish around Jesus’s birthday everyone seems to assume you don’t also have plans. I have plans. 
Initially I wrote the song for a Christmas party, and recorded it about a year later with Maurice Hall and at home in my living room.  Christmas is my JAM, hopefully I can make it a Bad Saint tradition. 


Hi Bad Saint,

Wanted to get your input on some new artists I should be checking out! Always looking for recommendations!

-Emily from Toronto

Bad Saint: Maggie Rogers is my queen. I’ve also been loving Middle Kids. 


Bad Saint,

Do you have a favorite guitar tuning? 

-James from Memphis

Bad Saint: EBGDAE is really all I use. I’m old school, sometimes if I feel really wild I’ll tune down a half step. Recently I got over my aversion to capos, so that makes me feel adventurous.


Dear Bad Saint,

What's your favorite thing about teaching music?

-Lilly from New Orleans

Bad Saint: Figuring out how other people process things. I love trying to understand how other people think and adjusting curriculum based on who I’m sitting with. 


Hey Bad Saint,

How do you channel your inner badass on the stage?

-Frank from Boston

Bad Saint: Performing is very cathartic for me. On stage I just try to connect with what brought me to that stage on as honest a level as possible. Thats my version of badass, and it’s different day to day.
