Brian Hartzog's Musical Influences

"I grew up listening to classic rock radio--the kind that plays great songs all day...songs from the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin. Then, when I was about 14 or so, I discovered funk music--thanks to Prince's 1999. From there I learned about James Brown, Parliament, Sly and the Family Stone...Whenever I found a group that I liked, I'd find out who they were influenced by...and I'd listen to them too...I guess I was trying to learn the lessons my heroes learned from their heroes...I'm a real student that way...Most people can hear little bits of all of these influences in my music..."

-Brian Hartzog
