T. Hardy Morris is featured in a fantastic article published today on Paste Magazine. The feature explores Hardy’s process on writing and recording this new album, his grunge and southern influences, and includes flattering quotes from a few of Hardy’s peers and fellow songwriters.

“What I like most about Hardy’s songwriting is his uncanny ability to simultaneously channel Neil Young, Merle Haggard and Jagger/Richards, yet it’s always subtle and never overt.” – Steve Berlin (Diamond Rugs/Los Lobos)

“I don’t know anything about Hardy’s actual writing process but he makes it sound as if it just flows out of him very naturally. It never sounds labored or forced. There’s an almost conversational aspect to his lyrics that I love, and they sound very unified with his excellent sense of melody and his gorgeous voice. Plus he’s a great live performer with a smoking band.” – Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers)

Preorder his upcoming album Drownin On A Mountaintop (out June 23rd) on iTunes or Bandcamp for only $8.99, or get the album on limited edition white vinyl or CD from the Dangerbird Records webstore.
