Special thanks to Peter Hayes for taking the time out of his day in Switzerland yesterday to invite me over and chat with me about their music.  It was a real pleasure to have a chance to meet him as well as Robert Levon Been and Leah Shapiro prior to the show.  They were also kind enough to pose for a photo for me at their resort (click on image below for higher resolution):


I’d highly recommend checking out the new album, as well as catching their live show if possible – they are an awesome band.

I reviewed the concert in separate coverage for Day 7 of my ongoing reports on Caprices Festival in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, which can be found HERE:

    Hi Jason. I’ve also interviewed Robert in Caprices Festival. I wonder if you are interested to listen to it.Let me know, with much pleasure I’ll send it to you! Honestly I’ve discovered them at the Caprices Festival and since then I’ve been thinking on those marvellous 15 minutes in which I could also record a piano impro of Robert. Do not hesitate to contact me, it will be fantastic to share this experience with someone who could understand it. Cheers, Natalia.

      Hi Natalia,

      Thanks for finding me and reaching out. Yes, I’d love to hear your interview with Robert… I also caught just part of the piano improve (somewhere in my files) but
      if you’ve got a better recording, that would be awesome if you could share.
