From 2008 - 2010 you may have been fortunate to catch a show with me alongside Jason Bladh. He recorded cello on "Tomb" and countless others. He was by my side driving across the country in a beat up, green, conversion van. Playing my first sold out shows and opening for Blink 182 and Yellowcard.
You're lucky if someone comes back around, especially as a musician. I'm grateful to be recording and performing with him again after so many years. Picking up where we left off.
To me, cello is one of the most pleasant instruments. It's the perfect companion to the voice and acoustic guitar. Harmonically, It can bring a song to life, encasing that emotion. It heightens so many aspects of a mix.
Nothing was more fitting than to have him play on "Golden" this evening. A song that he has played a hundred times.
Finally documented. Finally realized.
