Husband and wife Graydon James and Laura Spink comprise The Young Novelists, an exciting roots duo that can on occasion grow to include a few more members. 

I described at least one of their songs as Jeff Lynne meets Wilco, but they truly add a wide variety of sounds and influences to their sound - which has paid off. They picked up the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year.

In this conversation, I chat with Graydon about influences, songwriting, and the power of simplicity in affecting an audience.
