Thoughts on tour + work + travel
I didn’t know you did this! It’s very relatable. We can talk all about while we hike through a coastal rainforest.
Well I had no idea but this confluence makes so much cosmic sense! My first-ever trip to NYC - the one that convinced me to move here - was for the two fabulous nights of 69 Love Songs at Lincoln Center (Chelsey Johnson is a friend and gave us the heads up early enough to get seats right up front, one of the great thrills of my life to date); does that mean I bought a tee shirt from you? We'll be at the New York shows next year, too. <3
Wow- loved reading this- I feel like all you hear from some bands is how hard touring is. (And I'm sure part of it is) But loved hearing your positive reflections on what sounds like incredibly awesome memories.
Aww, Emma...wishing you and Mike and the kids a great last summer 2023 hurrah before the hustle of the school term. I love the idea that you were “a bodyguard for people...” as well as being “very much of the audience.” As the first born of a lotta kids as well as oldest grandkid of many (35 I think) on my Mum’s side, and just because I’ve always been bookish and observant as well as protective, I relate to that role.

A music recommendation for you. Charlotte cornfield- maybe you already know her. She’s also a huge Magnetic Fields fan and has a song by that name.
What you describe here sounds utterly heavenly. This might well be my dream “job”!
