Mark Tremonti Talks Origin of Solo Project

Mark Tremonti of Creed and Alter Bridge fame is hitting the Machine Shop in Flint on Sept. 20, bringing tracks from his debut solo release, ‘All I Was.’ Tremonti, of course, is a sick guitar player, so it should be awesome to see him shred it up in an intimate venue like the Machine Shop.

I had the chance to interview Tremonti for Loudwire a few months back, and he chatted about the origin of his solo project.

“It was fun! I’ve been songwriter since a kid, so I’ve always sung to myself and sung to my closes friends and people I work with when I’m writing,” he explained. “When I was younger, I hated my voice, and I think over the years of doing it, you get more control over it.

“I reached a point when I had three months off tour, and Myles was out with Slash, and Scott was doing his solo tour, and I decided to put together and album and use the ideas I played for the guys 100 times but never made it into a song, and that I’ve always enjoyed.”
