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

07/28/20

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.
