I would be lying if I elaborated on some deeper meaning behind this song. The truth is, my dad and I really just wanted to write a “feel good song.” We were in his studio and he played a really fun and catchy guitar riff for me. We both agreed that it was very reminiscent of “Soak Up The Sun” by Sheryl Crow, and we just went with that feel. This guitar riff plays a huge part in making “Good Vibes” sound summery.
Writing this song and filming the video in the middle of winter in Canada was almost therapeutic. The winters are LONG in Ontario, so entering a “summer” mindset was a fun distraction. I hope listeners are able to enter this mindset as well. I hope you can close their eyes and feel like you’re on a beach somewhere!
