At age 14, Sean Scolnick started writing his first songs,
penning Nirvana-inspired missives about authority, school and “stuff that a lot of 14-year-old
kids probably write about.” Now in his early 30s, Scolnick doesn't
employ those subjects as inspiration anymore. Listening to his
story-heavy goulash of Folk and AltCountry reveals nary any traces of
Cobain and Co. at all.
