"In late January of 2014, I entered Portland, Oregon's legendary Jackpot Studios accompanied by my friends in the band Black Prairie. John, Jon, Jenny, Nate, Chris, Annalisa and I tracked quickly. Almost everything you hear on The Traveler was recorded live on the floor of Jackpot during that beautiful week. The great Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey came in later and helped out with a few overdubs and that was pretty much it.
My favorite thing about music is the friendship it engenders. And the best way to make music is to get some friends together in a room and roll tape. That's how The Traveler came to be. I'm so grateful to Black Prairie for all the fun we had making The Traveler.
Thanks for listening. Please enjoy.”
