Late Fakirs’ songs are stories of shared human experience – sometimes confessional, sometimes humorous or edgy – with images that connect us emotionally in a conversation. Metaphor has the power to teach both of us – writer and listener – something about ourselves and maybe each other. Performance of the song is just the start of the conversation – ideally we have the rest of our lives to see where it takes us. So long as we’re talking, you and I, we’re still alive.

Late Fakirs is a loose affiliation of friends from widely different places on the musical map who got together to see what would happen when we collaborated on some tunes.
