“Dear Companion is a collaboration between three Kentucky musicians: the songs are written and performed by Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore, produced by and featuring Yim Yames (My Morning Jacket). Recorded in the first half of 2009 in their home state, Dear Companion explores their ties to the place they love and aims to draw attention to the problem of mountaintop removal coal mining and its impact on the people and heritage of central Appalachia. A portion of the proceeds from Dear Companion will benefit Appalachian Voices, an organization devoted to ending mountaintop removal and finding a better way forward.”

Love In Stereo got the chance to catch up with Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore on their stop in Nashville, TN at Grimey’s. It was an honor to chat with these two guys and, being from the south, it was inspiring to both see and hear their love for home spill out in conversation and in song.

On Saturday some of the Love In Stereo crew headed over to Grimey’s in Nashville (only the coolest record store ever, by the way) to check out the in-store performance of indie rock all-stars Surfer Blood. Their latest album “Astro Coast” is constantly playing at our place, and if it isn’t in your rotation, it should be. Go get it right now for just $5 at Amazon. After the show Jonathan interviewed lead singer and Surfer Blood mastermind, J.P. Pitts, and drummer Tyler Schwarz.
