I wrote a small piece for Billboard magazine about Crooked Rain's long journey to the center of my heart. It's one of the coolest, and weirdest records from any time period. The article compiles the thoughts of a number of people whom the album impacted including Lilly Hiatt, Larry Crane, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn and Aaron Lee Tasjan.
Susan Kearns' curated show opens Friday, February 1 in Joshua Tree, California at Gallery 62. The show is titled SURFACES. Susan has six paintings displayed that were inspired by songs from my upcoming album, Down In The Wash, including the painting pictured above which is the front cover. The other artists in the show are Joanna Szachowska, Tobi Taboada, Michael Maxwell, Alane Levinsohn, Eric Banas and Francesca Spoonhower. In addition to oil painting, there is sculpture, assemblage, encaustic painting and more celebrating texture and how artists apply surface manipulation to their art form. There is an OPENING PARTY on February 9 from 6pm to 8pm. Come on by! Musical surprises might happen.
