[sounds] Stripped State: Laurel Canyon Recordings

From January to June 2018, my wife Cat costume designed the Amazon series adaptation of the podcast Homecoming that shot in L.A., so we decamped Brooklyn for a 1930s cottage aerie perched halfway up Laurel Canyon. I bought a knock around Seagull guitar at the perfect scaled All-In-One guitar shop in Koreatown, and recorded a couple dozen tracks in our Gould Avenue house. My Gentleman of the Canyon adventure took me to a songwriting time zero, stripped down and raw, to that place where I just sat and thought and wrote and strummed. And listened. And learned.

These tracks are destined for evolution. But for now, they float the aether in a simplest, stripped state, kicking up some glorious west coast dust for me. Who knows where we’ll meet again. Hopefully, in The Canyon.

[music video] This Canyon Drive

Figures that living in Laurel Canyon for six months would inspire one of my best tracks. Special place. Will return with more permanence someday.

“Welcome to Eyewitless News. Our top story: A pissed Piping Plover is pooping on posh people, and politicians and police are powerless. Our Penelope Pepperpane is positioned for a play-by-play. Penelope?”
“Thanks, Preston. They say, ‘Provoke a plover, run for cover.’ Well…”
