In past projects, I've worked with Kevin (ScatMan) in limited roles,but this one's a real-time collaboration. ... It originated from thinking about a reputed Indian tradition of old folks going out to freeze to death for the good of the tribe, and how that might play out in a modern (dark humor) situation. What I was trying to achieve was to write a hillbilly gospel song that expands into adjacent realms. Kevin's playing mandolin, harp, fiddle, piano, and scorches a mean B-bender solo (he takes the first half, then I chime in with him on Hellecasterish harmonies on the second half). He says he's not particularly country-oriented, but you wouldn't know it listening to this. Production-wise, it's pretty experimental for me. Kevin kept my head on straight as far as dumb mistakes. I'm vulnerable on the analytical flank, and he covers my a$$. Full disclosure: This is my first time out on the JBL monitors! See what you think. Home On High .
