One of my lesser known influences is Buddy Holly. Growing up "Everyday" was probably my first ever "favorite song." Im talking when I was like 5 years old...and it still holds up today as one of my fave songs of all time. His songs were so melodic and catchy but still had incredibly personal lyrics and a sense of life that hits you immediately. I encourage all of you to go listen to Buddy Holly and try not to bob your head. His style was so fresh too and pretty much set the trend for hipsters everywhere with his thick rimmed glasses and slim fit suits. Love this dude!
