Dave sat down with singer/songwriter Tom Mercoglan to talk about his experiences playing music in various parts of the United States and break down a few songs from his recent and upcoming album releases. They also discussed how technology has changed the recording process and the way music is distributed. Tom tells a few stories about sharing the stage with the Ramones and the Stray Cats as well as providing insight into his creative process. Tom’s work spans the entirety of American roots music and his ability to amalgamate his influences to create his own sound is his biggest strength.
