Produced by the Salt Lake City Arts Council, the Twilight Concert Series is one of the longest-running and most revered community events in Salt Lake City. Over the last 30 years, the Thursday night summer concert series has presented renowned artists in a variety of genres including indie-rock, hip-hop, reggae, and blues. The Twilight Concert Series is dedicated to connecting audiences with the arts by presenting accomplished national and local artists that represent strong artistic values and diverse social principles."The past isn't finished with us yet. Love can be like that, too. A couple of years ago I found love in different forms leaving my life at once. In a single month I lost my closest group of friends, my 13-year relationship ended, and my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I had just stopped touring to write the next Blind Pilot album, but instead I was watching each of my plans unthread as a new season pulled forward relentlessly."Avoiding suffering, is avoiding real happiness too. My reason to tell this story isn't because it broke me and pinned me breathless. There was suffering, but those two years, as I moved to my hometown to help my parents through my dad's sickness and eventually his death, also brought me true closeness, a deeper will to care and hope, and many moments of beauty I can barely describe."This album came from love for my family, my town, my friends, my community. We don't have to be so afraid of loss. We can speak and share its name, knowing we are together in it. If these songs are invitations to talk about loss and death, the invitation is to talk closely of the courage we find when we face loss honestly, cracked open and unsure of what we will become."
