Justin Ringle’s Horse Feathers - A Different Band

Our visit with the Portland, Oregon based band Horse Feathers today has a much different quality than the band’s previous Cafe visit. Two major things have happened on the new album So It Is With Us. First of all leader Justin Ringle has strived to make the band more of a cohesive unit than just “the people who back Justin.” You can hear it in how they play in the studio for us today. You cans also tell in our session that Justin has written a more upbeat album reflecting some change in his life. Positive change for Horse Feathers!
