Surviving the Music Industry


Jul 7, 2020

Will Hoge is the artist and songwriter behind hits like "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," "Need You Now," and "Another Song Nobody Will Hear." But before all that Will was a Tennessee local kid that discovered music through his father and uncles band, which inspired further steps to discover more of what is out there in the land of country and rock'n'roll. Major record deals and flops, political and stances in albums in music, and a life or death situation has solidified Will as a staple in American music. For two decades, Will has carried the torch for American rock & roll, carving out his blue-collar sound rooted in amplified guitars, melodic hooks, southern soul, and rootsy stomp. In conversation we cover a lot of ground including big money from record labels, writing polarizing music, and being ok with pissing people off as you learn how to draw the line in the sand for yourself. But more importantly, holding on to a dream even when it breaks your heart.
