Here's a link to listen to Cory Branan's feature from last night's episode of NPR's All Things Considered. Cory talks about his new album The No-Hit Wonder, "preposterous happiness," and how his music doesn't go well with bachelorette parties.
"Roots music is a little more like a bourbon," Branan says. "In that world, some people are fine with whatever the bartender pulls from the bottom shelf. It's brown, it came from a barrel; they're just gonna put Coca-Cola in it and pound it until they're parched anyway. But the music that I love, and strive to make, is a little more small-batch, distilled — hopefully like a sipping whiskey."
For the record, Cory never told us his music is "commerce-proof" when he signed with us.
