Mister Link

About Mister Link: “He travels the fastest who travels alone.”

-Rudyard Kipling

“Music is not something I choose, it chose me,” he admits. “It’s not something I do, it’s something I am. I love music and its corollary, poetry, because it speaks with words and tongues I cannot otherwise say, and condenses all things into their essence.”

Stylistically, many have already linked this Torrance, CA musician to the mystical essence of another famous Southern California rock icon. “As a singer, I’m often compared to Jim Morrison.” However, Link doesn’t quite see this Doors connection. “I don’t know why other than I’m a baritone,” he speculates. “Maybe it’s the poetic bent.”

This “poetic bent,” by the way, is one artistic characteristic setting Link’s music apart from more pedestrian, by-the-numbers rock & roll. His verses are set to diverse sonic elements derived from The Cars, White Stripes and R.E.M.-flavored music. “I’m a true Romantic poet in some ways, like Shelly and Byron with a touch of Yeats’ mysticism,” he explains. “I love rhymes from another era.”

With that said, Link is by no means any snooty, overly highbrow artiste. He’s, instead, a self-described fan of Kurt Cobain, Credence Clearwater Revival, Rage Against The Machine, Green Day, Metallica, No Doubt and Johnny Cash. He’s is all about whatever touches an emotional nerve, and follows “wherever stories are told with passion, hunger, humor, wit and angst. I am of no time, I am of every time.”
