Matt Conner

The blank slate facing Matt Thiessen wasn't daunting in the slightest. Instead, as he explains in this interview, the Relient K front man actually made "having fun" his only rule when it came to recording the band's new album, Forget and Not Slow Down.

After finishing their last record contract, Thiessen & Co. now run their own label imprint (Mono vs. Stereo) and make music on their own terms—a refreshing change from fulfilling the demands of those around you. Thiessen's reflections on the new stage for Relient K are interesting and reveal an artist enjoying the process of it all.

CMCentral: When a lot of bands release a compendium like The Bird and the Bee Sides, it usually means they're turning a page and starting over with a blank slate. Is that true with Relient K?

Matt Thiessen: Yeah, that's true. I don't know if I've ever thought of it like that, but it is like sweeping up the floor and starting over again, which I like. That's how the new record feels to me. It was very incremental in us getting out of our record deal. We had a six-album deal and the Bee Sides thing really finished up that first album deal. So, yeah, we did get to start all over.

We got to restructure everything from the ground up as far as our business, our management and even getting a new drummer. We got to do all of this purging and restructuring to put out a record we're really proud of. Then when it comes time to work really hard to support this album, we can all feel really good about it, because we all have our ducks in a row first and can feel responsible.

CMCentral: What did that blank slate give you this time around?

Matt: Yeah, when you sign a record deal, it's weird because certain people will put certain pressures on you to do certain things. That's just what happens. So when we finished the Bee Sides record, I called Toby [McKeehan] and Joey [Elwood] and said, 'Hey, this Mono vs. Stereo label isn't doing anything at the moment, so can me and Matt just run that?' Matt's the other original member of the band and we've known each other since second grade.

So they're letting us sign a couple bands and run this Mono vs. Stereo thing, but when the record was being written, that's all we had. We didn't have a record deal with anyone else, so we're just on our own label. There's no pressure there. So as my own A&R guy, my advice to myself was to have as much fun as possible making a record and enjoy every minute of the process. There's no pressure and I personally don't care if it succeeds or if it fails. So it's fun to be your own boss like that.

CMCentral: So you mention the pressures you got rid of, but were there still some internal pressures impacting the music?

Matt: Well, I wouldn't use the word 'pressure' because it's not coming from an outside source. I'm always going to have internal turmoil. There's always going to be things that hold tension with each other that create the songs. But I don't feel that I have to write a certain song and I never feel cornered or write out of that feeling.

CMCentral: So what feeling did you write out of?

Matt: This time was really cool because we decided to do a 24-page booklet and there's a lot of photos and there's this vibe on it. I went to this lake house way outside of Nashville and was in solitude for two months. I didn't see anybody I knew except maybe on weekends when a friend would come out or whatever. But I would just wake up and write all day or go for a run or do whatever I wanted. Toby and Joey, it's their lake house. It was the best time I've ever had writing records because there were no distractions.

Turning off your phone is definitely a choice. Deciding to go see friends you haven't seen in a long time because they're playing in town is a choice. If I'm in a city where things are happening, there's going to be things to do and people who want to hang out—sometimes that's beyond your control. That gets in your head when you're sitting around trying to finish because you have to hurry up and get ready to go do this or that. But you take away the social aspects of your life and it's amazing how much more time you find.

Every donator will also be submitted in a Annual Christmas program in which there will be a cash give away right before Christmas this will all start at the beginning of the year 2012.

It's in you

The Power to be all that God intended you to be is right inside you, right where you are, right where you are at - in life. No matter how much the enemy has tried to convince you otherwise You are a Child of The King, heirs to HIS thrown, Salt & Light to the world, all you need is ask HIM daily to show up and show out in your life, He will do just that, make that choice Today, will YOU!  --Falcon Better Tomorrows 

Heaven Is Real

If I can touch the hem of HIS garment


My goal today, Today I will be the example of Jesus to the world. You might ask how I am going to do that, great question thank for asking. That is the simple part I have faith in HIM to be with me, little secret, I will tell only you, I can’t do anything without HIM.

I Love The Lord so much HE does that often puts me in touch with parts of the HIS work. The answer to the question Grace,--- His Grace. ---- His Grace. --His Grace....Never ending Grace my friend. I can't stop telling people His Love is unimaginable to anything / every thing here. He Loves You So Much HE will accept You just the way you are.....

Psalm 23

The LORD Is My Shepherd A Psalm of David.

The LORD is my shepherd;

I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green Pastures.

He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of The shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever....
