Chris Thile interview…and Switchfoot
For years, one of my favorite bands has been Nickelcreek, especially after their last album. I loved the bombast and sheer anger, most of which was attributed to Thile’s divorce.
This is the first interview that I’ve found with him that acknowledges him losing his faith, as well. It’s chiefly sad to me, and reinforces my opinion that the public spotlight is a crap place for family and faith.
Trite as it sounds, I wish him the best. And hope he finds what he’s looking for…
And that his other bandmates make that record with Switchfoot they keep talking about.
Speaking of which, Jon Foreman’s solo records sound refreshingly good. Really good. ‘Cause let’s face it, Oh Gravity was alarmingly disposable. And their live bootlegs are disappointingly rough. But listen to his eps and his exceedingly welcome escape from his song-writing rut of the last three album. It’s really good.
