The 12 songs on “Threadbare Quilt” are some of my very favorites from a decade of songwriting. They are influenced by a variety of American roots styles--delta blues, gospel, cowboy songs, brother harmonies, Texas swing, folk, and “country music” before country, bluegrass, and old time diverged—but it's all me, for sure. There's plenty of rock and roll, some spoken word influence, symphonic strings, distortion, and humor. All infused with the love of a good story and the poignancy of the minor chord. 19 musicians share their tremendous talents with me on this record, and Kathleen Fallon and Eric Nielsen helped pen 2 of the songs.
