Hiya,

 

      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.

 

      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at shatchsurvey1@yahoo.co.uk

 

Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,

Steve

 

 

 

My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.

 

Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.

 

            The track: http://soundcloud.com/stevehatch

 

1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?

 

2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

"If I were to trace the genealogy of the country music Outlaw, it would start with Bobby Bare, roll through Willie & Waylon and that whole gang, follow Cash through the late 90′s, and end up in the country music underground with people like Peewee Moore as possibly the perfect example of the Outlaw lineage in the present day"

The Bigotry toward Americana

Last year Giovanni Russonello took to the Atlantic magazine to draw a narrow line from Bob Dylan's "Americanarama Festival of Music" showcase and the lack of diversity in the genre overall. ("Why Is a Music Genre Called 'Americana' So Overwhelmingly White and Male?")

On May 2nd, 1836, 59 Texian settlers signed a declaration of independence from Mexico, creating the Republic of Texas. May 2nd has since been celebrated as the Lone Star State day of independence honoring a spirit of individualism and pride that remains to the day.

Few states embody that spirit of independence as singularly (and brazenly) as Texas. Texas is the only…

Music Review: John Murry – The Graceless Age

John Murry's life could have been a Southern tragedy penned by his second cousin William Faulkner. An addict who lost his wife. child, home and before cleaning up, almost his life. These harrowing experiences are reflected back darkly, but not bleakly, in "The Graceless Age."

Murry's brand of fuzzed-out pop-Americana take you through uncomfortable landscapes while not pushing to alienation. His emotional warble is reminiscent of Jay Farrar and Bruce Cockburn and it fits…
