HOW TO BE A MUSICIAN WHEN YOU’RE NOT THAT GOOD OF A MUSICIAN
with John Roderick
John Roderick will explain every single aspect of being a singer/songwriter and recording artist, including, but not limited to:
How to be a musician when you're not that good of a musician.
How to keep writing when everything you write is boring and terrible.
How to completely rewrite songs you thought were finished.
How to maintain some semblance of dignity in a shameful world.
How to find the coconut of an idea in a sea of cliches.
Hello Little Winters!
We hope you are doing well, and apologize for being incommunicado for the last little while. We promise we have been keeping busy; work is well underway on our eventual follow-up to Putting The Days To Bed. To tide you over until then, we have an exciting announcement!
The wonderful team at Dorsia films has just released a DVD chronicling our tour-closing, homecoming show at Seattle's Showbox Theater on April 14th, 2007 that we wanted to draw your attention to. It's available through Barsuk and other respectable retailers now!
John Roderick's talent for observation has not gone unnoticed and he has been asked to write a weekly column for Seattle Weekly. Currently the column is on hiatus due to the band's studio work, but there are plenty of old entries for your perusal: a personal history of the Seattle music scene, sex and rock 'n' roll, an indispensable guide to beards and much more.
