With the release of the But God I Love the Game EP, Buddy Won't Tell takes a fresh approach to genre clashing to give the record a life all its own. Laced with addictive progressions, a blend of natural and digital instrumentation, and soulful vocal approach, the record boasts the aesthetic of alt pop anthems. 

The first single, “My Small Love", immediately grabs you with it's infectious guitar hook, followed by it's building arrangement allowing it to build into a unique form of hard hitting indie pop. 


"'Little smalls' or 'smalls' (for short), was a pet name I had for a significant other. 'My Small Love' is in reference to her but also a dig at the ephemeral nature of our relationship. In the song, the lyrics say 'even if the sky falls, is there something left?' What I’m asking here is; even if everything crashes down around us and we strip ourselves down to our truest selves, do we have anything at all? So a part of the songs theme is about rekindling truth" explains songwriter John Lawrence of his single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Buddy Won't Tell is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

 

"I feel like in every one of my songs, I’m searching for something. Ya know that moment where you replay a conversation in your head, or you play out a hypothetical argument and you get to say everything you want or wanted to say? I like to use my lyrics to explore or expose those words, and find out what it is I’m really trying to say. This record is eclectic. I’ve always had a fear of complacency or repetition and this song is just as experimental as the rest of the EP" says Lawrence of creating the record.
 

Having a heavy passion for music, songwriter John Lawrence has been performing in and out of bands since the age of 12 and writing music even before then. After a 4 year stint as lead vocalist for a metal core band came to an end, Lawrence decided to put focus on solo material. The artist went on to record songs but never became quite comfortable enough to release anything to the world. That is until 2018 when he released his first single under his own name, John Lawrence. With a name as common as John Lawrence, he later changed it and dubbed the project Buddy Won't Tell. Putting time, love , and effort into the release, But God I Love the Game is a testament to where he is at with his sound right now. 

 

But God I Love the Game is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the artist is always working on new material for upcoming releases.
