So, Joe Russo is definitely my long lost brother and is one of my favorite humans, musically and otherwise. Got to sit in on a handful with his ensemble Joe Russo's Almost Dead on Friday and it was pretttttyyyyyy amazing. Those guys are all absolute gems and to get to sing songs (incuding my own!!! ) in front of a thousands of dancing elated beings was a dream come true. πŸ»πŸŒˆβš‘οΈπŸ’€βš‘οΈπŸŒˆπŸ»

And finally - Weekend recap #3. This was quite something. Got to be the NASH in β€œSuite Judy Blue Eyes” with two lovely friends - Robin Pecknold (whom I’ve known for an age but have somehow never gotten to sing with til now) and James The Shins (whom I’ve known for even a longer age and always love singing with) -- and then Judy Collins showed up and made my year. Thanks to Chris Funk for putting this together, and Newport Folk Festival for all the amazingness 😭😭 photo by @deanchristesen

"Underneath guitar melodies that seem to glide on warm California air, and Johnson’s singular falsetto harmonies, he is working through some dark, existential anxieties on Gold Past Life. But that’s what makes these songs so sublime." β€” No Depression

"Terrific… It’s as a lyricist where Johnson is really peaking here" β€” Variety on the new album, 'Gold Past Life.'
