The opportunity to do an interview with Mo came up and not knowing anything about this artist, I felt it would be the perfect opportunity to do so. Here’s what he had to tell us.
Hi Mo thank you for taking the time to chat with us
Tell us a bit about your backstory. How did you get started in music?
Well my dad was a player ( steel guitar, banjo, guitar, bass )and watching him along with have ing all those instruments and records laying around was the perfect storm.
Who were your influences growing up?
Tony Rice, Larry Sparks,Don Willams , Merle Haggard are just a few !
Your album is titled ‘Behind This Guitar’ why did you choose that as the title?
Loved the song “Behind This Guitar” I thought it gave a great description of myself unto that point of my life and thats what I hoped the whole record would do.
How long did it take to write and record the album? probably
How many times have you visited the UK?
One time to Ireland is as far as I’ve come so this is still new to me !
What do you think makes British audiences different to the ones back home in the States?
I’ve heard that there is much more respect for the artist and the music.
What music do you like to listen to that isn’t country? And does that help you find inspiration for your own material?
Very much, I listen to James Taylor a lot .. I also listen to a lot of Christian singer songwriter type music .. I think there is a lot I’ve learned from absorbing different things like that ..
If your career wasn’t in music, what would you be doing instead?
Training Bird dogs!
What’s next for you?
There is a album in the works
