Paul Givant of Rose’s Pawn Shop Explains How The Pandemic Has Impacted His Process

In a recent interview with The Big TakeoverRose’s Pawn Shop leader Paul Givant discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the band and his songwriting. As it turns out, being sidelined for a while was good for both his songwriting and his ability to strategize with live performances. “It was a good time to write,” he told the site. “I have a backlog of songs, more than we could have put on this record. We could probably fill up a couple more records. We already were adjusting our touring strategy before the pandemic, trying to do more targeted dates. It’s grueling to go out for weeks where you might have 3 good shows and then there are other ones that are not great and you’re just losing money. We found a way to be more strategic in our touring and more targeted and going out for short, impactful dates and then coming home and then going out again.” Check out the full interview here.
