Music Made Me: Mike Hosty

The rollicking blues enthusiast shares the five albums that shaped his rugged musical outlook.


Music

Phil Bacharach
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Will the Circle be Unbroken (1972) 

My dad bought this album and played it over and over on his new 1978 Nikko hi-fi stereo, which I still have. It was the guitar playing of Doc Watson and Merle Travis that really caught my ear. Amazing picking, playing and songs like “Tennessee Stud.”

Grooms — Infinity Caller


Indie

Zach Hale
Grooms may be based out of Brooklyn, but their roots are firmly entrenched in Norman. Frontman Travis Johnson — an OU graduate — is the project’s linchpin, one that underwent a series of lineup shuffles and a name change (from The Muggabears) before relocating.
