Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with Bryan McPherson, who will be releasing his third album, Wedgewood, on June 10th through O.F.D. Records.
Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
Folk music. Music of the people.
Who are your musical influences and idols?
I grew up on Bob Dylan, Guns N Roses, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Michael Jackson, '90s punk bands like Rancid, NOFX, Avail and lately I have been listening to Bill Faye, Leonard Chen, Townes Van Zandt, Bright Eyes, Tom Petty, Against Me!, Billy Bragg, and Bruce Springsteen.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
I bought GNR's Appetite For Destruction LP.
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
I have played so many strange gigs. I just played in a cave in Germany. It was pretty rad.
What is your current favorite guilty pleasure?
If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
Del Fuego. Because it would be hot.
Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
Prince, Bob Dylan, Sex Pistols, Nirvana and Janis Joplin singing "Purple Rain."
