I first met Sean Watkins on a festival bill – his band, (Nickle Creek) and mine were opening up for Wilco, REM, and Macy Gray. We became fast friends and wrote some songs, which turned into an album, which turned into a band called “Fiction Family.” After years of traveling the world and consuming lots of coffee together, I am more of a fan of this guy than ever.

And if you haven’t heard, he’s got a new solo project out. Go check out his new record!
