Q

When are you coming to Denver? :)

Hi Josh - sorry to be a bit getting back. I don't think we'll be in Denver for a while, unfortunately...have to make another SW record first! Loma's coming to Taos, NM in May, which is as close as I think we're going to be for a while. (JM)

Q

Any chance of a cd release of the live album?

Hi Alan - probably not, I'm afraid; at least not in the near term. Nothing stops you from buying the digital version and burning your own, though :). All best - JM

Q

Hi guys,
huge fan here.
I was wondering which song(s) do you enjoy playing live the most.
Plus, an extra one for Jonathan, since he writes these genius and wonderfully weird lyrics, where do you get inspirations? Do you have any books you can recommend?
Cheers from Germany, Fabian

Hi Fabian,

Sorry this has taken a loooong time. I always looked forward to playing "Long Time Away," "Hail, Mary", "Backchannels," "Rooks," "Insolence", and "You As You Were"....but as for lyric inspiration, I don't know...hard to say. A writer I've loved for a long time is Peter Matthiessen...his book "The Snow Leopard" inspired the song, but he has many other wonderful books, including "Far Tortuga" and "Under the Mountain Wall". All best - JM

Q

Hey guys, is it true there is a live album in the making? If yes, when will you release a vinyl version? Greetings from Amsterdam, Stijn

It was true! https://shearwater.bandcamp.com/album/th...

We don't have plans to make a physical version at present. It's possible that we might consider making some for a future tour, though. Thank you for the encouragement!

Q

Hope to see you back in Vienna soon! Any plans for another European tour? :-)

Not for a while as SW, but JM's new project Loma is releasing an album in February and will be on tour soon thereafter. Hopefully they will get to Vienna! Check them out at http://lomatheband.com.

Q

Come back to the UK soon...

We won't be there for a while as SW (probably 2019), but JM's new project Loma is releasing an album in February and will be on tour soon thereafter. Check them out at http://lomatheband.com.

Q

We're demoing our second album right now and as huge fans, would JM consider a producer role?


Shearwater responded on 11/16/2017
A

Oh no! I'm sorry we missed this. Email contact@shearwatermusic.com if you need to get in touch in a more timely manner. Right now, JM is laser focused on finishing his book, though. But thank you for asking!

Q

Will you be touring this summer, or anytime this fall?
