Sound Check: D. Striker

Sound Check D Striker

Longtime Nashville resident (by way of Athens, Ga.) D. Striker mixes a serious love of country music with a knack for satire. He publishes RR, a zine that “tackles Nashville’s past and present while throwing up a salute to revelry and crazy people,” every Friday the 13th. And his new album, Come Over Here, deals with themes of romantic confusion, music industry absurdity, and dance-offs. “Three Dudes In An Office,” which Striker performs for Xpress, “questions the sincerity of chest-thumping country boys singing redneck odes penned by Music Row office writers,” according to the songwriter.
