1.Are you surprised how things have gone for you so far?

Yes!  The past year has been full of surprises, and it just keeps getting crazier. Getting signed two years ago was just as much a surprise as selling out Le National last week.

2 What was the inspiration for the upcoming album Dark Eyes?

You could have just as easily asked me what the inspiration for playing music is, and I couldn’t tell you.  I have to make music just like Half Moon Run had to make Dark Eyes.  Our inspirations are each other, our relationships and the whole spectrum of our human experience.

3. Are you happy how radio and media has gotten behind the band?

Absolutely.  We never anticipated that our music would have much mainstream appeal. We’ve always done what has felt best for ourselves, so it’s very exciting to see our music expand to a wider audience.

4. How does does it feel to have Mumford And Sons behind the band?

It’s an honor to have their support.  To have people with such success show their support for us at the birth of our musical career is very motivating.

5. How do you guys warm up for a show?

A healthy combination of napping, fighting, jumping, eating, drinking, laughing, shit-talking, and hugging (sometimes).

6. What’s the bands drink of choice?

Kombucha, lately.

7.Who have you enjoying playing with?

Being on tour with Patrick Watson and his band was so good for us.  They are so full of love, and taught us so much about keeping your spirits up on the road.  It was also a pleasure to watch their show every night, and it just got better every time.

8. If you put the ultimate festival together who would be on the bill?

In no particular order, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Buena Vista Social Club, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Bob Marley, Buddy Holly, Michael Jackson, Kraftwerk, Vladimir Horowitz, Sviatoslav Richter, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson.

9. What inspires the band when writing songs?

Being in the jam space is a pretty pure place for us.  We leave our influences at the door and make an effort to pull our inspiration directly from each other and what we have to offer in the moment.

10. If you do a duet with anybody who would it be?

I’m not much of a singer (dylan), but if you put me at the piano with stevie wonder, I think I might actually die.

11. What would be find on your stereo at the moment?

Currently listening to Willie Nelson, but I had the Eagles on in the car earlier today, and recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Alt-J and Other Lives.
