Fleet Foxes, Vivian Stancil film

Hey summer funners, two new things are out:

I’m very honored to have played some trumpet on the new fleet foxes album with the rest of the westerlies. We’re on a few tracks throughout the album, but our big moment is on the last track – the album closes out with just Robin and us for a few minutes. Also psyched that many of our NYC buds took part on the album: Hannah Epperson played a bunch of violin throughout, Jon Seale/Mason Jar Music organized a string section, and Gabriel Gall did some arrangements. Seattle and NYC collision!

And, this is a short film I scored about a blind woman who learned to swim at the age of 49. It was directed by the Very Brilliant Riley Hooper, check out some of her other wonderful work.

If you’re in NYC – The Westerlies are doing a show at Joe’s Pub on July 9 with some amazing friends: Theo Bleckman, Kate Davis, Vuyo Sotashe, Samorah Pinderhughes, Sarah Kay, and Phil Kaye. Yowza.
