Buffalo Gospel’s Ryan Necci spoke with Trapper Schoepp about the impetus behind his latest album, We Can Be Horses, and his newfound songwriting perspective.

“I find inspiration in writing from animals’ points of views,” Necci said.  “Sometimes I lose interest in human interaction and writing about myself.”
