Folk, roots, Americana, singer-songwriter… punk… Any of these descriptions suit Cory Branan. The latter being based more on theoretical aspects. But, consider that he's currently touring with The Gaslight Anthem and Against Me!, you'll realize punk rock isn't just about sound, it's about the ideas behind the music. "Punk music and country music, they're trying to get to something with the least amount of bullshit, and I find that that is the immediate tie between punk, roots and folk music," Branan says in his interview with us. His latest release, No Hit Wonder , signifies the soul of punk, yet in a much different package. A stellar release, No Hit Wonder , asks for repeated listens to full grasp, yet addictively straps you down from the first listen. You can grab it here.
On his tour, he spoke by phone to contributing editor Xan Mandell about touring with Against Me! and The Gaslight Anthem as a folk musician, the process of writing an album and the realities of making a career out of being a solo musician.
