Mail Bag b/w "Baby (Does What He Must)"

the boys are back... at home.

🏡 We're back home resting up after our U.S. tour. Thanks to all who came out for making these some of the best shows we've ever played. Yeesh! We're feeling very lucky.

🎟️ Shows are beginning to sell out ahead of my solo acoustic run in April. You know what to do, honchos. Tickets available here.

🎧 Walkin’ fans: we’re back, baby. Our monthly Spotify playlist has been updated with all the tunes we jammed on the road this month. Nina Simone is working her magic on me. Crank it.

💌 This month I'm answering two questions from the mail bag: one about fingerpicking practice and one about how much I still love Tove Ditlevsen's memoirs. Paid subscribers will also find a studio outtake of an unreleased tune called “Baby (Does What He Must).”

Til next time,
