It’s a true honor to be a part of the 5th installment of the always beautiful and inspired Imaginational Anthem series on Tompkins Square. The talented guitarist Sam Moss, featured on volume 4 of the series, was asked to curate this one and was nice enough to invite me to contribute alongside some incredible contemporary guitarist’s including Steve Gunn, Jordan Fuller, Nick Schillace, Will Stratton, Bill Orcutt, Daniel Bachman, Eric Carbonara, Alexander Turnquist, Cam Deas and Yair Yona.. Due for release November 13th! The volume will also be part of a 6-CD box set due out November 23 containing all 5 of the Imaginational Anthem disks along with a live disk from William Tyler. Previous installments include an incredible cross-section of both contemporary guitarists and legendary pioneers such as greats John Fahey, Sandy Bull, Max Ochs, Khaki King, Glenn Jones, Peter Lang, Robbie Basho, Sharron Kraus, Michael Chapman, Jack Rose, James Blackshaw, Jose Gonzales, Christina Carter, among so many other visionaries. I am beyond humbled to have any association with such a lineage!
I recently had the honor of contributing a track for the beautifully curated Eight Trails, One Path LP. The compilation will be released in April on Three Lobed Recordings for this years Record Store Day! It will include original and exclusive contributions by guitarist’s Lee Renaldo of Sonic Youth, Steve Gunn, Six Organs Of Admittance/Ben Chasny, Sir Richard Bishop, David Daniel, Alan Bishop William Tyler, Grayson Currin, and Casey Burns. I’ll leave you with a little teaser of the lovely interior designed by Casey Burns. It will feature silver and brown ink, letterpressed by Jeff Mueller at Dexterity in a matchbook-style folded stapled cover. So excited to be a part of this!!!
