Mailbox | Get Lost

With Get Lost, I wanted to focus on piano-based songwriting and a more live band sound. This is what Mailbox is now and, even though some of these songs are several years old, I find them all very exciting. I’m pushing myself to write more about what I know whether directly or symbolically.

As always, I had a great team of players and writers to bounce ideas off and collaborate with. Greg Skillman’s classic surrealism finds a new kind of home on the strangely-erotic “The Stampede of Mules,” the epic “Micronesia” and the purely fantastic “Dolphin Forest.” Long-time friends and co-conspirators Scott Stout, Chris Combs and Jeff Margolis contributed a lyric each. Jeff also joined in with Vermont bandmates Chris Johnston and Jay Ekis to keep the grooves lively and ever-changing. Sara Rabin enchants the “Dolphin Forest” with her sweet voice.
