Inspired by many artists including Robert Johnson, Roy Orbison, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, Lenny Kravitz, and T Bone Burnett. "... the variety of music flavor profiles ... [keep] the listener engaged. If you don't have the lyrics stuck in your head by the time you are done listening, well then give it time," per Cait Lambert of the Brain Drain Ditch.
