Among the many who count themselves as a fan of Father John Misty? Bonnie Raitt! In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the legend talked about her affection for everyone’s favorite Stereogum commenter:
Which young artists inspire you?
I’m really digging Father John Misty. I caught a couple of his late-night performances that he did recently, and I think he’s really smart and the kind of satire we really need right now. It took me a minute to realize that he’s playing a deliberate character – but the more I see him, the more I like him. Not only is he handsome, but he’s talented and hilarious. I was knocked out.
