On choosing this particular Philadelphia compatriot to cover, Lutz explained:
Chris Kasper is just a great singer/songwriter – period. He’s been a personal favorite of mine for years now, whether it’s his solo work, his live shows with a full band, or his side project Foxhound. He has a very honest voice and an amazingly polished yet rough sound, especially on his new album Bagabones. I’m really excited to see what he comes out with next.
