John Moreland

Monday, January 17th

Largely self-performed and self-produced, Moreland produces music that is influenced by his Oklahoma roots, music that is “gloriously and joyfully heartbreaking.” Moreland has released a constant stream of records (in 2011 he released two full length albums and two EPs), saying “I write a lot of songs. And I guess I feel like your most recent release kind of represents you.” Moreland has cited Steve Earle as his “gateway” to folk music. He switched genres from hardcore to folk when he heard Earle’s song “Rich Man’s War”. His father was also a big Earle fan. Other influences were Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. – excerpt via artists wiki
