After hearing the debut album from Hazel English, you might be surprised to learn what inspired it. At one point, she was studying to be a sci-fi writer, and that has worked its way into her first album. More obvious is the influence of ‘60s psychedelia and Motown. On the next World Cafe, she talks about bringing those disparate influences together and discusses why she loves songwriting.
