This is Kevin Gity of Rhode Island, I love the portrait he created of me! We found Kevin via We Are Lions, a nonprofit artist collective & lifestyle brand made up of people with disabilities & their artwork. Look for merch inspired by Kevin’s artwork at my upcoming solo show at the Doug Fir and thanks to everyone who bought tickets!
Thanks for the enthusiasm! Tickets for my solo acoustic show at the Doug Fir are now on sale at https://bit.ly/2JjYd7U
I’ve missed you! Soooo…. I’ve decided that while I’m working on new material I’d take a break and play some solo acoustic versions of my favorite Shins and Broken Bells songs for you. Please join me at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland on June 24th, tickets go on sale Friday at 10am PT. https://bit.ly/2JjYd7U
Listen to Lucius cover “Keep Me Hanging On” produced, mixed and inspired by Richard Swift for the Fug Yep Soundation. It is one of two songs in the first release from the series benefitting MusiCares, Music Support UK and the Swift family. Each Fug Yep Soundation release will feature a 7” with two songs recorded with or inspired by Richard and will feature his original artwork. Swift was a prolific and persistent visual artist. His studio was just as much a place for creating visual art as it was for making music. Order the 7" No.1 at http://fugyep.org "Keep Me Hangin On" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUw-G0xHNgI

Today we are announcing a project very near to our hearts. The Fug Yep Soundation is a 7” record series we created in loving memory of our friend, and genius contemporary, Richard Swift. Through this series we will be releasing music by people he worked with and loved, in the spirit of Swift, with the outcome of providing financial support to the Swift family, and to two organizations- MusiCares and Music Support UK- in a mission to help those who are struggling with addiction.
