Brian Fallon is a songwriting tour de force: ask Maria, Marilyn or Matilda. From his four albums with the Gaslight Anthem, to his soulful solo work and his Horrible Crowes side project, Fallon is one of the great storytellers of our time. Hailing from the working class streets of New Jersey, he’s very open about the influences he draws from, be they hometown or worldy.
In a 2012 public interview with Red Bull Music Academy in New Jersey, Fallon discussed his influences, storytelling, recording in Nashville, and more.
