Hanging with John Prine

What an honor to meet John Prine backstage at Red Rocks this summer! We talked about growing up on the far west side of Chicago and riding bikes around the city. We also talked italian beef and being a “couple Chicago guys” as John put it. Thanks so much to Paul Defiglia and Laura Goldhamer for the amazing time in Colorado.

“Single Girl, Married Girl”

Whenever I’m in Athens, GA or Laura is in Chicago we try to record something together. Last time it was loops for the Orange Twin Records‘ Handy Jam app, before that it was clarinet tracks for Tired Ghostly Town. This time we snuck away before sound check on Neutral Milk Hotel / Elf Power tour in Chicago and recorded a Carter Family song.
