On today’s episode of In Conversation, we welcome Strand of Oaks mastermind Timothy Showalter.
Strand of Oaks released one of the best albums of last year with In Heaven, an album that saw Showalter laying to rest many of the anxieties of his earlier works to instead marvel at the magic of our existence. I had originally met Tim while doing a story on the return of his annual Winter Classic acoustic shows in Philadelphia and I knew with how well that conversation went, that he would be the perfect guest for In Conversation.
Strand of Oaks just announced an extensive tour behind In Heaven that will start this May.
In our talk we discuss his three year anniversary of giving up alcohol, the “miracle music” that inspires him to create, the change of perspective on In Heaven, the musical lessons he learned from both Jason Molina and Phish, and so much more.
