I have interviewed and written about multiple people in music. It's one of my favorite things to do, because each musician's story is so integral to how they write songs, why they write songs, and what fuels them to share their music with the world. Below are just a few of the freakishly talented folks I've worked with.
This dude is freakishly talented and has enough stories from his career to write a book, which I hope to help him do one of these days! Our interview lasted three hours. I took 12 pages of notes.
In 2009, singer/songwriter Jill Martin was on her way to making it big in the music industry. Following the advice of musician John Rich, who she met on the set of Nashville Star, Jill uprooted from her hometown in Kansas to move to Nashville.
Brittany Taylor didn’t inherit her musical ability from anyone in her family. It comes straight from her roots. Brittany shares geography with Chris Stapleton, Dwight Yoakum, The Judds, Patty Loveless, and Loretta Lynn. She was born and raised in Eastern Kentucky just minutes from the legendary US 23, better known as the Country Music Highway. It’s a part of the country that has produced some of country music’s biggest stars.
Through a conversation with Luke, what became clear to me was the authenticity of his music. His appearance mirrors his life. He has a powerful voice and an even more powerful story.
It’s safe to say that songwriter Tyrus Morgan stumbled into a music career by turning obstacles into opportunities. He didn’t pick up an instrument until the death of his beloved grandfather, who left him a 1947 Gibson acoustic guitar.
This group is a newly formed band that combines the experience of four extremely talented veteran rockers. Their individual musical pasts are woven into one powerhouse group that is poised to have a huge musical impact. Think 30 Seconds to Mars meets Imagine Dragons.
