Animal Hours Interview by KDUP Music Director Mason Lindblad

I had a great chat with KDUP music director Mason Lindblad the other day and he’s just posted it online. I felt a little weird talking about myself for that long, but we had a good time and covered a lot of interesting ground including art, the craft of writing, my next record release, and growing up in a dome in the middle of nowhere with a very small sample of popular culture frozen in 1975 as the base for an overarching songwriting aesthetic.

Animal Hours Reviewed on The Bay Bridged


“Darkly enticing pop music with hints of folk and Americana skirting around the edges. Take ‘Submarine,’ a track off their debut album Do Over: gorgeous harmonies bolstering a haunting chorus, swooning strings and a lachrymose guitar line that’s sure to pull at the heartstrings.  It’s a song you listen to with the lights off, just you and the contemplative melody, wholly embracing that sadly-sweet darkness and letting the music lead you through it.”
