From the Red Bull Music Academy:

First getting hip to the psychedelic rock heritage of his native West Coast upbringing, Nels Cline ventured out into the world of improvisational jazz and jazz rock, before being introduced to noise-laden versions of rock & roll by Sonic Youth and the New York No Wave scene. Beyond Wilco, Cline has played with characters as diverse as Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Yoko Ono, Marc Ribot, Thurston Moore, and Lydia Lunch, and explored the possibilities of experimental composition with his own outfits The Nels Cline Singers, Fig with Yuka Honda, and his duo with former child prodigy Julian Lage. In this excerpt from his recent interview with RBMA Radio, Cline discusses his earliest musical epiphanies.
