"A few shots from my SoFar session with brilliant accompanist Meg Webb, please find her and give her money, for she IS one of the best violinists I’ve come to know, and one of the sweetest souls to boot. I’m sure footage from this nite will surface eventually … along with all the other countless late blooming seeds I’ve planted here in Los Angeles.

Don’t feel too bad for me, I’m loving my time here, but every winter seems to get a little colder and I thought I’d never live through some of these past summers…

Coming this week I’ll be singing back up for friends Papa, December 6th at the El Rey. Check em out.

Possibly busting an Only You residency at the Bootleg circa 2014.


Still plugging away at the OY album, savoring every day I get to spend at the Village and all the amazingly gifted musicians who come through there. Gently approaching pitch time, fingers crossed for me ok guys? I usually need extra tlc in my life.” - RF

Only You: The TVD First Date
By Special to TVD | December 19, 2012

“It’s because we’re supposed to be inspiring each other, not jerking off and cramming it onto an LP. Real metaphors. I worked at Streetlight Records in Santa Cruz, California for 4 years after high school. Slinging vinyl was a coveted role and no aspiring young Beat like myself would look down on Streetlight’s selection. All good girls know there’s a big importance in protecting and sharing records. Fine records enhance the mind and what good are thick sticks if you’re running the ship with earwax?
I bought Cat Power’s Dear Sir LP after hearing the track “Mr. Gallo” on a rainy day. It wasn’t my first record but it was the first to be listened to front to back. It’s the type of record you sit down and you listen to. I mean you let it get at you—it’s your world for the hour. So it was then I knew how strong the concept of an album was. And it was then that I fell in love with vinyl as a format.
It was tremendously different from plugging in and zoning out to music on my computer. This makes me think we as a collective or as individuals should try harder to introduce friends to records.
Collecting records is both engaging and private. How do I convince whoever’s reading to go out and pick up Black Sabbath’s eponymous debut?”
