Interview: Justin Kline
Power-Pop singer/songwriter Justin Kline’s new album Cabin Fever Songs, his first proper full-length album, is a beautiful and honest look into his internal life. Stripping back his saccharine arrangements and joyous melodies, the Tennessee-based artist focuses his songwriting into mostly acoustic songs that are more poetic and introspective than anything we’ve seen in his career thus far. It is also perhaps the strongest material we’ve seen from the young songwriter, whose melody craft has always been extremely strong and his lyrics have never been more on point than this set. I got the chance to ask Justin a few questions about the new record, his process, and shoot him some lightening-round questions!
DSIMH: First off I want to thank you for sitting down to answer some questions. You’ve said before that you were born in Japan. When did you move to the states and how has that background influenced your music or your life?
