Back in July, we were on tour in Scotland. Following our Friday night show in Ullapool and on our way to a Pop Up Festival on the shores of Loch Ness, we stopped by Mark Forbes' Summer House and recorded an interview and performed a few songs. The Summer House Sessions have a lot in common with The Solar Cabin Sessions. But Mark goes further in depth with his interviews (which I find inspiring) and the artist performs a number of tunes instead of just one. I loved the experience of having this table turned on me - I'm the performer instead of the interviewer. Mark directed us through a conversation that covers what inspires me (good songs), the definition of a wash, how living in the desert effected the sound of my latest album, and how gentrification caused us to leave Portland, Oregon, behind for the Mojave Desert, and the changes that came with going solo and putting my old band, Blue Skies For Black Hearts, in the rear view mirror. And I play Low Wind Howling and Mojave Moonlight from my album, Down In The Wash. And I finish with So Long City, the title track from my first album.
