Much of the EP was originally composed and written in Nashville at Jim "Moose" Brown's studio,[2][3] though some of the final tracks were recorded[2] at Richi Cannata's [4] Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York.[2][5]

Participants in the album's creation were two-time Grammy nominee Bobby Graziose, who served as co-executive producer, and producer Tony Bruno, who also works with Rihanna and Enrique Iglesias.[2] Producer Joey Sykes, who previously worked for bands such as Third Eye Blind, also collaborated on the project.[6] Country songwriter Don Rollins and Jody Gray assisted as co-writers along with Matassa on one of the tracks.[7][4] The EP is a stylistic blend of Rock, New Country, and Pop.[2]
