One Question Interviews: Broken Field Runner

Tony Bucci (Broken Field Runner - guitar, vocals)

SPB: What is your favorite 1970s artist?

Bucci: My favorite artist from the ‘70s has got to be Nick Drake. I️ hadn’t heard of his music until I️ was 19 and was visiting with my “cool cousin” Tempi who put it on during a long drive saying, “Tell me when this was released because I️ bet you can’t.” She was 100% correct.

His music is as fresh sounding today as it was in 1972 and is a testament to how your art can touch people long after your gone, most notably Elliott Smith and Kings of Convenience in his case. I️ toyed with giving Judee Sill because of how thoroughly her S/T album has grabbed me as an adult, but Nick Drake drove me to look more earnestly at my acoustic guitar as more than just something wail on.
