Interview: John Joseph Brill

Share

We caught up with John Joseph Brill ahead of his show at King Tut's on 16th November...

 

KT: Hey John Joseph, cheers for taking the time to come in and catch up with us!

JJB: Well hello...

 

KT: You’ve visited Glasgow before, how did you find it?

JJB: I adore Glasgow, it's always such a friendly place to be and the food is incredible. I'm a vegan now and the options in town are limitless! The crowd at that Sofar show were incredible, so attentive, so involved. I really hope they can make it down to the Tuts gig!

 

KT: You’ve just started a 16 date UK and Europe Tour - How does it feel to be on the road?

JJB: Honestly I feel most at home on the road. I like the routine of it. A different city every day, fridges full of beer, an opportunity to explore a bit.

 

KT: Do you have any necessities that you take on tour with you?

JJB: Headphones, I think everyone in the splitter needs a bit of alone time now and again so I often switch off listening to records or podcasts. The West Wing podcast is my current addiction. And then Rennie, for the morning after...

 

KT: What has the response to your latest EP “I’m Not Alight” been like?

JJB: Really lovely. The reaction has been so heartwarming. It's special when you write about something particularly difficult and it means something to other people.

 

KT: Who would you say your main influences in music are and why?

JJB: Tom Waits, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Jason Molina .. I"m a lyrics guy. I wanted to learn how to tell stories and these guys taught me.

 

KT: Any final words?

JJB: Don't eat yellow snow.
