I don’t know what they put in the water down in Texas, but it seems to give way to some of the best songwriters out there. In my recent trip to the @kerrfolkfest I definitely got a taste of how songwriting is so steeped into the culture down there. Guy Clark, @jamesmcmurtryofficial and @lyle_lovett have all been huge influences for me - and writing songs like them is something I continue to strive for. These guys are all featured in my #milesweputbehind playlist. (Link in bio)
Another band from my influences playlist, @dawestheband . I saw these guys live a few years ago and was completely blown away. They’re such a great band, in how many different musical points they hit on - great musicians, singers, and incredible songwriting. One thing I love about Dawes, is they find a way to have big sound, without distracting from the story being told – which is something I was aiming to do with this record – having more texture sonically, while remaining true to the songwriting.
I’ve just put together a playlist with a collection of artists who have influenced my upcoming album. One of those influences is @davidmyles - a great Canadian songwriter – I love how he is able to blend different genres together to make his sound. Turn time off is one of my favourites of his. Being romantic and sentimental can be dangerous territory when writing songs, but David manages to do it so well, and definitely inspires me to take risks with my writing too.
