EP92 - Musician - Does the Music Own You? Billy Ray Rock


Billy Ray Rock is an artist of many styles and genres, so Michael had to ask him about his influences. That question turns autobiographical as shares stories about living in a one radio station town to how he builds playlists when he’s driving with his kids.


When it comes to connecting with an audience he shares two secrets; first is that it only takes one song to connect – and second, it only has to connect with the coolest person in a peer-group.


Beyond that, the two discuss the cycles of racial divides in the music industry, RNB dance going on the wane and the nature of telling the truth.
