John Moreland started writing when he was 10 years old – now 31, the Oklahoman songwriter has mastered the art of heart-breaking rootsy folk. He has been anointed as the new voice of Americana and been called the “songwriter’s songwriter”.
His third and most recent solo LP, High on Tulsa Heat, is a career high point. When you listen to his songs you can hear traces of influences like Steve Earle, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, but it’s also profoundly and unmistakably the sound of him. We’re talking sparse compositions beautifully framing a soul-baring baritone as his precise, evocative lyrics paint pictures of real-life heart ache. His show is sure to cling to your heartstrings.
