i was talking with somebody last night about how being yourself is high art in the theater of the real world. doing that in music is even harder. phoebe has unapologetically been herself as a person and as an artist since the day i met her at a chinese restaurant where we both really didn't like each other. i spent a couple years of my life quite literally 24/7 with phoebe, writing this with her, playing shows with her, traveling with her, people watching, posting up in the woods in Idaho, posting up in silverlake, falling in love with oregon, over analyzing everything and getting to know harrison who also became hugely important to me. looking back at it, the anchor weight of those years was making this album. to say that i'm proud of this is an understatement. to say that this album is the most representative of what im trying to do musically is also an understatement. very few moments in my life have been as surreal as seeing the day this thing is released. i almost wanna cry man. i now live in the neighborhood where phoebe grew up. i didn't know anything about this place before her. i didn't know what a good song was. i found an entire world during those years and it's all embodied in this album to me. So hey check it out. phoebe is out there touring all year so if you like it BUY IT and go see a show !
