In Their Words: "I moved to New York City to be a DJ and house producer — a career choice that has gone the way of the UGG boot, in recent years. And, as this shift started to occur, I found myself going back to the musical roots of my Vermont upbringing — an upbringing steeped in what I refer to as 'organic music' (free range music? hormone-free music?) and, most importantly, the bluegrass that my childhood friends still play every weekend.
I have known William Seeders Moshiem since I was six years old, so it seemed only appropriate that I call upon him, AJ, Josh, and Shay (Gold Town), and enlist the help of longtime collaborators Dave Robertson and Nico Dalagelis to help sculpt the title song from my album, I’ll Find Me, into a version that reminded me of the place that I was raised.
Shot by another childhood friend, Duncan Lake, in a renovated sugar house in Tinmouth, VT, the day was fueled by a lot of our dear friend Chris's moonshine, Vermont beer, and breaks to have our other friend Ben guide the non-natives through shooting skeet and eating cured meats. You could say it was a Vermont family affair. A perfect day!" — Ryan Cavanaugh
