Elvis and Tarantino Inspired Gin Wigmore
"It's a whole new world really, the history of music. For me, I learned about Elvis for the first time which is pretty impressive," she confessed. "I never knew what the big fuss was with Elvis. I never got why there were these crazy fans who dedicated their lives to this man."
Wigmore explained that going to Memphis and visiting Sun Studio and Graceland helped her understand who Presley was and his impact on the music world.
"He was a total King. I really learned a lot about his showmanship and how it was a show. He put on cool suits and was a performer," she said. "I listened to so much of his music and I think that really rubbed off on me for this record."
Her latest Butch Walker produced album explores dark characters and weaves empowering messages throughout each song. While her music videos bring to mind Quentin Tarantino, the comparison isn't far off as Wigmore is a big fan.
"I'm obsessed with Quentin Tarantino and right before this record I was watching film noir and black and white movies. The Night of the Hunter and all these old slasher films, real character based films," Wigmore said. more on this story
