Owl John - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

It’s been a decade since Scottish singer-songwriter Scott Hutchison formed the band Frightened Rabbit. After four albums, a major label record deal and an intense few years of touring and gaining a huge international audience, he was drained. It was obvious to everyone, including his label, that Scott not only needed take time off from his band, but also to pursue his desire to record some songs on his own. With the blessing and support of his label and his bandmates, he and some members of Frightened Rabbit decamped to the Isle of Mull off the coast of Scotland and commenced a fast-paced recording project dubbed Owl John (Scott’s embellished middle name).

The Roots, Steve Earle and Rufus Wainwright are among the eclectic array of artists announced for a benefit concert celebrating the music and legacy of David Byrne and Talking Heads at Carnegie Hall on March 23. That storied venue is a bit roomier than the old CBGB where the members of Talking Heads truly began their long love affair with New York City in the mid-1970s.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Graham Nash this past summer, shortly after he had overseen the production and release of CSNY 1974 – a beautiful audio/visual collection capturing the band during one of their most memorable tours. He had also recently completed his fascinating autobiography, Wild Tales, chronicling his historic musical and personal journey.
