In the latest edition of our No Country For New Nashville Podcast, we sat down with Dillon Hodges, the singer, songwriter, and musical mastermind behind electro-bluegrass project firekid. Prepping to release his debut album under the firekid moniker on Sept. 25 (through Atlantic Records, no less), Dylan told us all about growing up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, his new life in Nashville, and the musical journey that helped him arrive at such a unique, new sound.
Returning from a summer hiatus, episode 11 once again brings back assistant editor Philip Obenschain as host, following recent episodes with CAPPA, Five Knives, and HalfNoise. Don’t forget to check out previous episodes, helmed by Brad Wilson, featuring Brooke Waggoner, JT Daly of Paper Route, Vinyl Thief, Canon Blue, Ben Elkins of ELEL, John Davis of Superdrag and The Lees of Memory, and Alanna Royale. Episode eleven is sponsored by Lindi Ortega‘s new album Faded Gloryville, which is available now to purchase in physical and digital formats, and well as major streaming platforms. Theme music provided John Davis.
