West Michigan's music scene
That includes the compelling, distinctive Americana and alt-country music that he churns out year after year, his attitude toward the music business and what it takes to survive in this ever-changing landscape, and his take on what “success” really means.
Kalish, a nomad of sorts who graduated from Sparta High School and who launched his music career in the Grand Rapids area, recently earned some national attention for his latest album, “I Want to Believe,” when Rolling Stone magazine named him as an emerging country artist “you need to know.”
The Nashville-based artist recently sat down with Local Spins publisher John Sinkevics after a series of Michigan gigs for an RSVP Music Chat to talk about life on the road, the challenges of being a singer-songwriter, and — in response to a question by podcast listener Paul Lind — what it takes to quit your day job and follow your dream as a musician. In his view, it’s all about passion for your craft.
