I will be returning to France this December to play two more shows with the Young Rapture Choir. These shows will be similar in structure to those we did in 2012. There’s one in Bordeaux on December 13 at Le Krakatoa and one in Paris at La Gaite Lyrique on December 14th. You can get tickets over here.
I will be taking a break from my summer outdoor fun activities and sitting down and relearning how to play a musical instrument in the name of performing a few of Elliott’s songs for this/these special events. I’ll be at the Portland and Austin shows….pretty sure Jim Fairchild is in too. Details are below. There are shows happening in LA and New York too. You can read about those here.

Captured in the home studio and directed by Mike Vanata, here’s the video for “Somewhere There’s a Someone.”
Jason recorded a session for Daytrotter in San Francisco this past October turning out stripped down, piano based versions of Get Up and Go, Willow Wand Willow Wand, This Song is the Mute Button, and Somewhere There’s a Someone. The sessions is now streaming here. Check it out.
Ben of Horses Bridwell sent me this little “vocal,drum,guitar demo” that he recorded the night before in his hotel in Milan Italy and asked me if I wanna “add some whatever ” to it. I proceeded to slather sonic goo and build and mix upon it until I suspected the ghost of Townes Van Zandt was starting to get annoyed… I’ts a beautiful song chosen and sung by Ben and I had a great time working on it.
