Interview with SCOTT HOLSTEIN
HOLSTEIN: I strive to make every show a little different than the last. I carry a high caliber band who are stars in their own right and it makes for a diverse high-energy performance.People can expect my original songs to be played along with my choice of the classics It’s a Bluegrass,Country,Americana.Blues experience....
HOLSTEIN: Don is a great talent with that -mountain sound- that I love. He was gracious enough to call me up and ask if I still wanted him on the album that he would be in Nashville.I knew I wanted his harmony on Clinch Mountain Hills and Black Water was just a plus.It worked out perfect!
If you are not with them you stand a big chance of being overlooked or ignored.
HOLSTEIN: The whole world is showing its dissatifaction with the current corporate business model with the protests in the streets..I see this in the music industry. Corporate money over- rides the independent artist.It used to be an artist had to be somewhat of an entertainer, musician or songwriter and made it on their own merits. Now it’s possible to win a million bucks and a recording contract as a karaoke singer or get to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry while some industry legends are excluded and struggling to get by. I would change how we take care of the aging artists.
