Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow Milan Zrnic
Before Their Colorado Bus Accident Twin Shadow Played A World Cafe Session

We are thankful to have today's session with Twin Shadow with the music of leader George Lewis Jr. Lewis was born in the Dominican Republic and grew up in Florida, releasing his first album in 2010 and his third called Eclipse in March of this year. We are also thankful that the band are all recovering nicely after a serious bus accident a week after we recorded this interview in April. Twin Shadow has postponed their Spring tour to give everybody a chance to recover - Lewis will have to undergo reconstructive hand surgery. We'll find out how he came to record the album in LA's Hollywood Forever Cemetery and if the proceedings were interrupted by any paranormal activity.
