This weeks Free at Noon will feature American folk singer-songwriter Father John Misty. A native of Washington D.C, the artist formally known as Josh Tillman moved to Seattle when he was 21, where he eventually caught the eye of a Seattle recording artist Damien Jurado. Opening for Jurado lead to the creation of his debut album I Will Return which saw the conception of his rather angelic and serene tone that became a mainstay for further projects. Having been a member of bands such as Saxon Shore and Fleet Foxes, Tillman once again chose the solo route this time under his new moniker Father John Misty. His current project I Love You, Honeybear is set to release on February 15th and if featured singles such as the title track and "Bored in the USA" are concerned, the listener could expect to get a sense of longing, passion, and beautiful complacency. Catch him at this Free at Noon concert before he stops back in Philly on April 1, 2015 at Union Transfer.
