DETROIT PROUD: George Morris and The Gypsy Chorus“I think you can be inspired by anything.” George Morris has been writing music since he was in high school, first in a style known as “bedroom pop.” Why? Well, he would write and record it all in his bedroom, all on his own. “Everyday interactions, books,” George says. He pulls inspiration from everything around him. He jokes “even romantic comedies. You just have to keep your eyes open.”
DETROIT PROUD: Jet Rodriguez“The fact that it's got such a great history makes me want to be a part of it, in some small way. It may never ever work out that way, but when it's all said and done, I would like to have in some way made a fingerprint on the culture of this city, and the attitude toward it. It also holds us to a certain standard musically.” Those are the words of Cameron Navetta, acoustic guitar and vocals for the Detroit band Jet Rodriguez, speaking of Detroit’s renowned music scene.
