A cool new show started up recently called “Under the Radar”, and it features music by a lot of the folks around these parts. I had the privilege of visiting the producer Dave Trout in November to talk about RLII, and the episode just aired. There’s a mostly-in-tune live performance of “All You’ll Ever [...]
Sorry I’ve been AWOL here in the Rabbit Room for awhile – When I haven’t been hunkered down writing for a new record, I’ve been cloistered away from the world to spend time with my family. But what is it that could call me out of my hiding? A new Jill Phillips record.

Remember that great scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey when the apes learn to use tools? That singular event changed the course of history, gave rise to domestication, civilization, and in the fullness of time, even iPhones. It’s an iconic piece of cinema and an unforgettable juxaposition of sound and image.
It’s 2009 now and civilization [...]

Hey guys, just wanted to pass along the latest interview over at Soul-Audio with the Proprietor himself, Andrew Peterson. We had a chance to get some honest reflections about the upcoming Christmas tour, the new album and a lot of other topics I haven’t heard Andrew speak on before. Here’s part of the interview:

But it can’t last; it isn’t meant to. It’s like learning an instrument. We hear an acoustic guitar and want to [...]
“Eric Peters is cursed with an inability to settle or to sell out, afflicted with a need to follow his nose musically, lyrically, while spiritually he has falteringly tried his best to follow where God leads.”
Andrew Peterson wrote those words about the Louisiana native for the Square Peg website of which both songwriters are a [...]
You may remember me going on and on about the variety show called Tokens, taped right here in Nashville. I had the honor of performing on the very first show, and have been invited back for their Christmas special on December 9. Check out their website for info on the show, [...]
