Although his own music has evolved, Seneko stays connected with his core inspirations such as the Jayhawks, who he's seen live over 20 times. "The first time I heard the Jayhawks "Blue" I was floored and dug into their past. Then later on the power ballad "Trouble" off " Sound of Lies" - one of my favorite songs. Period. It's the melody, the hook, the truth that shines through their vaguely abstract lyrics. Their whole body of work - even my least favorite - is relevant and resonates. Also the fact that they never got super famous. I certainly get that, yet they drive on with their art to this day though their in their 50s."
"Wilco, Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet, Lou Reed, Dylan, Petty, Neil Young - all big influences."
