In the summer of 2013 I participated in an artist residency in Green River, Utah, organized by the group Cabin Time. During my time there I focused on music and songwriting. Bringing with me a travel size guitar, a baritone ukulele, and a battery powered keyboard, I produced nine new songs. The melodies and lyrics were generated on walks, around fires, and while perched on boulders high above the canyon floor on the group’s many explorations of the surrounding environment. The songs then serve as a record of my experience in the desert, as well as a portrait of our temporary home and community. On our last night at camp, I debuted the suite of songs at a “house show” we put on at the abandoned log cabin next to our campsite.
You can listen to the songs produced here.
Many thanks are owed to the cabin time artists and crew for participating in the creation of these songs with their stomps, whistles and sing-a-longs.
