I've been playing around a lot with open tunings, drone songs, harmonizing with myself, and the inspiration of really old folk music. This song emerged from that mixture. It's less about laundry and lumberjacking and more about recognizing one's whole self, flaws and all.

Music composed in the Mississippi River gorge in Minneapolis, MN. Lyrics composed on a train to Avila, Castile-Leon. Recorded in my living room in Minneapolis, MN.


released October 17, 2015
