Mr Kolton Dale Moore of Sulphur Springs, Texas. He is currently touring with touring with Kolton Moore & The clever few.
 When and why did you start playing?
"Started playing drums when I was 6. Started playing guitar when I was 13 and started writing at 15."
 Where do you usually gather songwriting inspiration? What is your usual songwriting process?
"The fact that I can help someone I don't even know through a hard time with a song I wrote is what drives me to keep doing it, that and it's the only thing I'm good at (I think). I don't have a certain writhing process, I've started writing songs while driving down the road, in my room, in a hotel room, during a sound check, in restaurants. Anywhere you can think of."

 Is your family musical?
"My sister sings a bit, but for the most part my family isn't musical."

 Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?
"I admire hundreds of musicians/bands Such as Dawes, cod war kids, wilco, Gary Clark jr, Noah gunderson, Ryan Bingham, David Ramirez. All because they write and play real music. There's no BS about it. No truck songs or songs about bikini girls." 
 What is a typical week like for you?
"Typical week for me: Thursday-Sunday I'm on the road. Monday I'm setting at the post office or printing posters at the print shop. Tuesday and Wednesday I try to fish or get in the woods and hunt something." 
Best place to play a show? 
"That would have to be Lubbock,Texas!"

Best place to eat while on the road? 
"Anywhere that will fry something golden brown and serve it with ranch dressing."

 Since everyone was a startup once, can you give any smaller or local bands looking to get gigs and ect,?
"Play as much as you can and don't become content. You can always be better than what you are at the moment."

Thank you Kolton so much!
