Birmingham-based musician Jon Black already has already had a pretty nice past few days. After all, he did kick off Saturday’s set of performances at this year’s Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores.
Well, the best way to top that experience is to get interviewed by American Songwriter at the festival. They also do a video interview – and a video performance of “My Love Is With You All The Time” – that they post to their website.
Then he gets to pen a personal account about his experience at the Hangout over on Carla Jean Whitley’s Birmingham Box Set just hours after the magazine’s post goes live (he’d been interviewed for the blog just before the festival).
He was also able to talk about the song he wrote for The Wind Will Cary The Voice of The People, the compilation created in the wake of the April 27 tornadoes (with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross).
