I think a reckoning is going to happen soon because there are still a lot of fans of the “outlaw” country, and smart producers and record label owners are going to capitalize on that eventually.
What are some of the Country/Folk artists that have influenced your songwriting?
The artists that have influenced me the most are the old “outlaws”. Willie, Waylon, Haggard, Cash, and Kristopherson. Bob Dylan is also a huge influence. Relatively newer artists that I really love are Sturgill Simpson and Cody Jinks.
Music is constantly evolving. Since you first started songwriting, what do you see as some of the the biggest changes in audience perception?
Would you like to share a tip about songwriting to new songwriters out there?
I’m fairly new at this, so maybe I can use some tips. All I can really offer, is to take the time to actually finish and record a song. If other songwriters are like me, they have tons of half finished songs floating around in their head. It’s important to focus on finishing those songs. Then on to the next one!
