How does living in the Bay Area affect your music?
AG: After having lived here for over a decade and seeing so many of our musician and artist friends having to leave had a big impact on this record. Our guitar player, Dylan, said that at times he feels like he’s the last guitarist left in San Francisco. It used to be that just about everyone in S.F. was some kind of an artist. That’s no longer the case. The artists/freaky people are the ones that made the Bay Area such an inspiring place to live. They’ve been replaced by 25-year-old Google millionaires. Trying to survive as artists in the Bay Area feels like you’re floating on a cracker.
