ARTIST: Will Horton (The Black Cadillacs)

SONG: Radio Silence

BIRTHDATE: 12/10/1988

HOMETOWN: Knoxville, TN

CURRENT LOCATION: Recording new music in Rock Island, IL.

AMBITIONS: Making the best music that we know how to is our general ambition as a band, if we end up making a living as a bonus then that’d be fantastic.

TURN-OFFS: Pleather.

TURN-ONS: Tex-Mex.

DREAM GIG: In Rio during World Cup.

FAVORITE LYRIC: ‘And the news it just repeats itself, like some forgotten dream, that we’ve both seen’  from “Hello In There” by John Prine

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: I guess that changes all the time haha – my band mates are certainly in the running.

SONG I WISH I WROTE: That’s a hard one to narrow down! “Rock n’ Roll Suicide” by  David Bowie stands out right now.

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Willie Nelson, Anthony Bourdain, Patton Oswalt, Tina Fey and  Isaac Hayes.

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: This past weekend we had the chance to play Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival. We played to an incredible crowd and we’ve never been treated better as performers.

I WROTE THIS SONG:  I wrote Radio Silence in the wake of a large change in my life so it is very much a song of transition and change.
