T. Hardy Morris performs in support of his new album Dude, The Obscure at The Basement in Nashville

We've always enjoyed how T. Hardy Morris's voice breaks through any recording or band he gets involved with. His gift for melody has stood out on each his solo records, his time fronting the dark, sludgy psych of Dead Confederate, or as a member of garage-rock's version of the Traveling Wilburys, Diamond Rugs.

Not only did we invite him to headline the first edition of very own Fuzz Fest last year, we sat down with him recently to talk about his new album. The album is called Dude, The Obscure, a playful homage to the Thomas Hardy Novel Jude, The Obscure.

Listen on to hear about his approach to making this record, how being a dad influences his songwriting, and, of course, the music legacy of his hometown of Athens, GA.
