Why are you not gazillionaires who have no time for all "the little people"? Very enjoyable meeting you after your "Surrounding Dillinger" performance last night. I'm 1/2 way through your latest CD and wonder who "Thirteen" was written by and what happened to cause the trauma?
Thanks for the note. The lyrics to Thirteen were mostly written by Cameron, although they reflect similar experiences that both of us, and I think many teenagers, had. It's not about one specific traumatic event. Rather the collective trauma of coming of age, growing up in the midst of disfunction, social life, hormones, etc. You can read the lyrics at https://ryanhood.com/yearbook
I recently moved here from NJ. There I was involved on the Board of the Folk Project. I have been getting involved out here with TKMA and more. I recently told my friend Mark Schaffer about how awesome you are. He just let me know that he booked you to play at the Folk Project Acoustic Getaway in NJ in the Spring. Way to go!
Are you performing around Tucson anytime soon? Would love to actually catch you live and meet you.
Best and be well,
Will you guys be around western PA any time?Ryanhood responded on 04/04/2017
