“Jason Molina was one of my musical heroes. I started my song project Owl & Mack inspired by him and his various outlets – Songs Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., solo stuff. Unfortunately I never met Jason Molina, even though he lived in Chicago. He died at the age of 39 (booze…).
Jason Molina is one of my big musical heroes. I was truly saddened to learn of his untimely passing.
This is for him.
Thanks to the team of Kule, Berlin for inviting me to perform at Labor Sonor and my two buddies – Tom Meadowcroft and Steve Heather, them beauties.

If you;ve had enough circular breathing solo sax multiphonics, drones n trills you’re not only a loser but can also jump to minute 10 for juicy vocals and backing harmonies.
