Aussie Americana singer/songwriter Imogen Clark drops into the studio to talk about one of her biggest inspirations, Ryan Adams’ solo debut album ‘Heartbreaker’.
We talk about how important the 2000 release was in the development of the Americana genre, the low self-esteem anthem ‘Come Pick Me Up’, how Adams uses softness and quiet dynamics to capture attention, the impact the record has had on Imogen as a songwriter and how she tried to capture the feel of the album’s production on her own new record.
Plus, Imogen closes the episode with a beautiful acoustic rendition of the Heartbreaker track ‘Oh My Sweet Carolina’.
