“What we saw in the 20th century was an anomalous blip when music had a physical form. Music has this intrinsic pull
towards the dematerial, towards the unbuyable.
It’s a slippery, ghostly thing.” — Jace Clayton
“History today seems more like a postmodern collage; we are surrounded by two dimensional representations of our heritage. Access via amazon.com or iPod to all those boxed sets of old blues singers- or Nick Drake, for that matter doesn’t equate with the sense of discovery we experienced. The existence of such a wealth of information creates an overload that can drown out revelation.”- Joe Boyd
I had the pleasure of singing a duet with Lotte Kesnter at a beautiful all a’capella event at St. Mark’s Cathedral on Saturday evening. This song will likely be on her next album, it is such a great song even without the instruments. This venue (church) is just stunning- a year and a half ago I got to open for Damien Jurado in this space and Anna-Lynne sang with me then, and returned the favor of having me sing with her at this event.
Lotte Kestner and I will be touring together in June, come check us out!
