About Willie Stratton

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My parents took me to Great Big Sea when I was about three years old. I remember it pretty vividly, it blew my mind! What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Jimi Hendrix, Band of Gypsys The Sons of the Pioneers, Cool Water and Seventeen Timeless Western Favorites Tinariwen, Elwan Cool Water - My Mom got it for me at a yard sale when I was in high school and I've loved it ever since! Band of Gypsys - An amazing display of Jimi's improvised playing. Elwan - This is my go to driving album, it's such a good vibe! Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “The Way She Holds Me” Co-written with a couple musicians I really admire; Dave Sampson and Seamus Erskine and produced by Carleton Stone. I like the story in it - it describes a familiar feeling and darkness without getting too specific, and I really like the imagery. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Life on the road makes too many memories! The food is definitely the best part though... Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? There's lots! Every time we go somewhere new I find out about things I want to see there or nearby, the world seems small until you start finding the more interesting little corners and then it seems to grow bigger and bigger.
