Q: Where did you record?
A: I recorded these in my studio in Williamsburg, Va., and then moved around the country here and there for the next eight to 10 months, adding special spices to the music: yMusic, Rob Moose, Blake Mills and Justin Vernon along with his merry band of musical cohorts.

Q: Do you subscribe to the belief the album format has become irrelevant?
A: The album format has clearly become irrelevant on a commerce level. On an artistic level, it still has great worth and relevance to me, so I'll continue for a good while in this endeavor in spite of all worldly attempts to diminish and dismiss it! Naysayers have been predicting the demise of the novel for years and years, but that's not stopping the amazing modern writers working in that area.

Q: What makes Amos Lee a good match for co-headliner?
A: I met Amos last year in L.A. where he was working on his last record with my longtime friend and creative partner Tony Berg. We hit it off personally right away. I have great respect for his abilities and his work, so I asked him to perform at my Funhouse Fest coming up a few months later. He played the festival, was fantastic and later reached out to see about coming together for these dates. We have different approaches musically, of course, but share similar musical tastes and a great love of American music in all its forms.
