Sorry I've been so absent from the blogosphere lately. I am still in Seattle, enjoying one more month with my family before heading out to Nebraska in late July. I'm not online much these days, in part because I have a so-so internet connection and also because I am trying to make the most of the time I have left in my hometown. But have no fear, as soon as I settle down in Omaha I will return to a more regular blogging schedule.
- "He got his start in New Jersey and he built his career in California, but Pete Yorn found his heart in Nebraska." - Kevin O'Hare
- "For fun, Pete would check out local bands in Omaha and gamble on riverboats." - mvremix.com
- "The dusky calm of Omaha shows up in the music..." - Dan Caffrey
- "Yorn says that the album was inspired by an escape from his everyday routine, and the change of pace between hometown Los Angeles and more rural Nebraska." - Press Release
I don't want to be too critical, but Omaha isn't exactly rural. It's a city with a population of roughly half a million people, and I've never seen a riverboat there in my life, but whatever. I am glad that Pete Yorn found his inspiration there, just like I'm hoping to find mine. Check out the album if you get a chance and let me know what you think!
