This time around, Niemann has added some non-traditional elements to his sound — namely, a horn section. “There is really no true definition,” he said about the band’s take on music. “Our ears are always on. We’re inspired by many things. But, first and foremost, definitely country music, that’s what we’re all about. But we like to let everything kind of seep in.”
Niemann’s latest album — “Free the Music” — was just released in stores this week.
