“While listening to Blessed Feathers for the first time, I really got a sense of where the artist has been in his life. Like the complex barrel-aged gin in Traveling Man, I sensed life has aged him yet given him hope on his journey through expressing his melodic and dreamy folk sound. This drink is what I like to refer to as a ‘sipper’, perfect for posting up in your favorite nook, possibly on a rainy day, light some nag champa, and contemplate life with Blessed Feathers.”
