Modern Explorer - Episode 1 - John Edward Baumann

Launching a new project today- recorded straight from my garage- it's the Modern Explorer podcast.

In this first episode, I talk with songwriter John Edward Baumann about how he first started writing songs and the ways we are trying to get better at it. We talk about summer camps, places we always stop on the road, and the difference between West Texas and West, Texas.

Then we move to the backyard for beers and to play a couple of songs in a segment called Backyard Biergarten. While my neighbor plays percussion (with a rake), and the dog shakes his collar like a tambourine, John plays a great song that's the title track of his new project "Gulf Moon" and I play a song that I wrote with George Ensle called "Rings on a Tree."
