  7. Thankful this instrument came into my life earlier this year. It spent the first 51 years of its life traveling thru the Universe before we connected. And I’m glad it did.

  8. And Major Lazer.

  9. For the seven years before I moved to Brooklyn, I always had my own space to create and escape. But after moving here December 2010, space and finances made it impossible to pull off. I’ve had studios in bungalows (Nashville) chicken coops (Topanga Canyon), sweat boxes (Utah) and converted grain mills (Vermont). Happy to unpack the rig this time in Brooklyn.

  10. Window out over the park.

  11. New Brooklyn studio.

  12. Frank Ocean, Diplo, with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon from The Clash.   

  13. Willie’s new album, Band Of Brothers, is streaming first listen at NPR. Recording one of my songs with him, remains one of the highlights of my life so far.  Eighty one years old, and still making records.  Still pushing.   

  14. The cabin. I built this with my dad. Who also builds guitars. And boats. We talked alot about making records.

  15. This came in the mail today. Original box.
