HANDFUL OF LUVIN'
David John - vocalist, guitarist and composer joined me. David talked about his youth and growing up as a young man with his guitar, meeting classical violinist Andrew Joslyn and their meshing of their styles to form a duo to perform around the Billingham and then Seattle areas and how they came about finding bassist Patrick Files, and drummer Michael Knight and find the sound that they now describe as 'fiddle-driven roots rock'. We listened to tunes from Life In Between.
