In This Light - Live at Bear Creek
2011 - 13 song CD
For years people have been asking me to record a live album. I never really liked the idea, but when Jherek Bischoff suggested inviting an audience into Bear Creek Studios just outside of Seattle, the venue seemed right and the idea stuck. I asked a bunch of my favorite musicians to join us for the session. The result is this collection of a few new songs, a couple covers, and a bunch of older songs that either have evolved a lot or lacked energy in the original recordings.
It took ages to finish this disc, mostly because all I could hear were the mistakes. But here it finally is. It isn't perfect, but there are a lot of lovely moments and I think it does capture some of the energy of my live shows. I hope you enjoy it.
