"The past isn't finished with us yet. Love can be like that, too. A couple of years ago I found love in different forms leaving my life at once. In a single month I lost my closest group of friends, my 13-year relationship ended, and my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I had just stopped touring to write the next Blind Pilot album, but instead I was watching each of my plans unthread as a new season pulled forward relentlessly.
"Avoiding suffering, is avoiding real happiness too. My reason to tell this story isn't because it broke me and pinned me breathless. There was suffering, but those two years, as I moved to my hometown to help my parents through my dad's sickness and eventually his death, also brought me true closeness, a deeper will to care and hope, and many moments of beauty I can barely describe.
"This album came from love for my family, my town, my friends, my community. We don't have to be so afraid of loss. We can speak and share its name, knowing we are together in it. If these songs are invitations to talk about loss and death, the invitation is to talk closely of the courage we find when we face loss honestly, cracked open and unsure of what we will become."
2019 Twilight Concert Series
The Twilight Concert Series is a summer concert series presenting a wide range of nationally recognized and upcoming musicians from across the country and around the world. Musical acts are prioritized and selected on the basis of diversity through both musical genres and those that represent, speak to, and serve as role models to multiple communities including underrepresented demographics in music, such as people of color, LGBT communities, women in music, etc.
This vibrant and beloved program is presented in partnership with S&S Presents. Working closely together, the Arts Council and S&S have curated a summer series with something for everyone.
