Q

Could you make a video or something about all your tattoos? I've been wanting to get one recently, but I always told myself that it had to be meaningful to me. That being said I want to get one inspired by you. Your music has been so influential in my life. It has brought me back from several mental breakdowns and anxiety attacks and I can't think of something more meaningful than a tattoo that either you have or one of some lyrics that you've written. Love your new music! It only gets better each time you release more. I know you worry about that sometimes, but I truly love every song you have ever written. Don't get discouraged!!

Aw thanks so much for saying that! I'm sure it may be a bit before tattoo shops are up and functioning. I'm not really sure I'd want to make a public video explaining ALL of my tattoos...haha I don't know if too many folks would be interested but I'd be happy to tell you about some of them and give context/meaning. They've always been kind of on a whim and picked up along the way and carry deep stories and reminders. I also try to hold the balance of remembering that life is impermanent and it's really not too big a deal to get one. Any in particular you are curious about? The one I think is most rad when people get is the As Above So Below symbol I have tattooed on my middle finger. It means more than I could possibly explain, just a giant universal worldview I try to peek through. Let's talk more about this! Cheers,

Not a question, just wanted to let you know what beauty your music brings to my life. In fact it saved my life. So thank you, hope to see you in the UK soon.

Q

just wanted to say that I hope you’re doing okay. Your music continues to make me feel understood and less alone. Saw your insta post and wanted to offer encouragement. ❤️

Hey thanks pal. That was quite the melodramatic day, but a few weeks away from the interwebs and some intentional work with the shadow and depression has lightened up my mood a lot. Amazing that the tunes can help others to feel understood and less alone, yet so many days that is how I feel. The great human predicament I suppose. Thanks for dropping by, sure means a lot

Q

So I'm an amateur guitarist and have been playing for a couple of years, generally songs like your's and Ben Howard's, singer songwriter type stuff. I have been looking online for a while for a tab for the The Rhine, and haven't found one, I was wondering if there was a reason or one just hadn't been made yet. One of my favorite songs ever!
If you have any tablature for it, or sheet music as well?

Thanks Gavin! I don't have any tabs or sheet music unfortunately, maybe I have sheet music for the string parts but not sure.

If it helps, You'll want to tune down to Drop D and pretty play kind of a D Power chord at the 5th fret of the A string, but lift your finger to let the G string ring through. Same with the Bmin I use (leave the g open)

Hope that helps!

Q

Well hello there :)
I'm listening to 'The Hollow in Retrospect' right now and it brought me to tears once again (don't worry i'm okay, kinda haha) and i was wondering what the song means to you? Like some lines just really get to me, because i can relate to them on a personal level..
Especially the Chorus &
'Dance to remind yourself that you're dying' & 'You're the darkness where I lost the light'

So yeah, what's your story behind these lyrics? :) I'm all ears.
Thank you for the amazing music you make by the way, i really adore you and your work.
Hope you'll come to Switzerland some dayyy!!!

All the love xx Lisa

Hey Lisa,

It's a love song, originally to a girl suffering from depression, then in retrospect a bit to myself and my depression. She was a dancer, and we both really struggled with that so the song sort of evolved over the years. Would love to make it to Switzerland some day!

It's ok to not be ok. :)

Thanks for asking! Hope that answer helps a bit, It's an old song so the meaning has really evolved. What does it mean to you?

Hey Corey,
Do you have a P.O. Box for mail by any chance?

I don't have a P.O. box but I don't mind sharing a mailing address so long as you promise not to mail anything overly nefarious or show up unannounced! haha there's nothing all that interesting going on here I promise you that. :)
