Nothing More’s Jonny Hawkins: I Was ‘Antsy’ to Release ‘Jenny’ [Interview]
Texas rockers on the rise Nothing More will hit the Hub City Tuesday night (April 14). I spoke to vocalist Jonny Hawkins before the show to talk about the band's latest single "Jenny" and why he was "antsy" to release it.
Talking about the band's latest single "Jenny," which is about Hawkins' sister, the singer explained how important it was for him personally to put the song out there.
Hawkins explained how mental health issues can be easily misconstrued by a person's own family members.
"Every family has that strange aunt or uncle or sister or brother that is kind of the screw up in the family, but it's never thought of in the mental health sense," said Hawkins.
Hawkins explained that his sister has bi-polar disorder, but that the song is really about raising awareness for mental health issues in general. To help rally people to that cause, Hawkins said that the band is urging fans to share their stories about mental health struggles on social media with the hashtag #IKnowJenny.
The Room of Doom at Jake's in Lubbock should be jam-packed as these dudes from San Antonio simply don't mess around. Islander will be providing support for the show, so that gives you two damn good reasons to get out and see a good rock show.
It'll be loud, it'll be rockin' and it'll be awesome. We'll see you there.
