Father John Misty has recently come to the music scene, and his authentic retro vocals are in high demand.
What is most interesting about his recent works is his music video that makes over a dozen sexual/pizza references. As odd as the combination sounds, it is a noticeable trend throughout the video.
Tillman grew up in an Evangelical Christian household in Rockville, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. The oldest of four children, he has a brother and two sisters. His father was an engineer at Hewlett-Packard. Before Tillman settled on a career as a musician, he briefly had ambitions of becoming a pastor because of the performance aspect when he was approximately six years old. He comments that his parents focused on the spiritual aspects of his upbringing, which he describes as “culturally oppressive”. They were estranged for many years, but have since resumed contact. After learning drums at a young age, Tillman learned guitar when he was 12.
