Tom Goss spoke to Meagan J. Meehan at HVY Journalists about his inspiration for the track.
“I had a friend of mine write me and tell me he had a dream that I wrote a song about a shy nerdy bear. No joke!”
As a member of a Facebook Group called Bears Be Gaming and playing a lot of Nintendo Switch at the time, the idea immediately resonated with the songwriter.
“So, I took the idea, and the Bears Be Gaming inspiration, and ran with it!”
Tom’s music often celebrates his love for bears. Earlier, back in 2013, he released Bears. Then last year, he brought out the delightfully titled Round in All the Right Places.
Nerdy Bear pays tributes to Geek Bears — the bears who enjoy video games, sci-fi and like delights.
