Bud Rokesky

As with the best storytellers, Bud Rokesky’s songs can be interpreted in many ways. Rokesky seeks to explore how people have different takes on the same situation. It’s a perspective gained from a lifetime of observing others. “Being an outsider meant I had a lot of free time growing up to question what everyone was doing, or why everyone was doing what they were doing.” He explains. “The fact that we have questions and troubles is beautiful, because we’re all here experiencing them.”
