Hey Casey, Brazilian fan here. I've been spreading the word about The Dear Hunter since I found out about the band back in September 2010.
For how long have you had the idea of expanding your creativity to many different genres of music? Do you feel like these colors themes gave you the opportunity to approach all ranges of music you love?
As a fan I feel like this new album really shows listeners how good of a songwriter you are. I believe not many people would be able to make so many different songs like you did.
Casey are you influenced at all by soul singers? What I mean is you have the most amazing way of portraying emotion, deep down earnest heart wrenching soul man. =^) I guess my question is who are your favorite singers and who would you say vocally has influenced you the most? Also you are the fecking man. Can't wait to see you in Tampa on the 18th of August.
It was awesome working with MO. I had 4 songs roughly demoed before heading out, but I wanted to sit with the guys and make sure they could also latch on to the material, so I would say that the sound was definitely due in large part to the time spent together before tracking.
Well it sounds awesome, as well as the other Colors. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you and O'brother at North Star Bar in Philly this summer. Take care.
I can't assume that the Yellow EP is your favorite just because it features an adorable picture of Aurora SO, do you have a favorite? I personally can't pick one. They all seem to be representative of a different genre. Well done, sir(s).
Hey Casey, just wanna I love The Dear Hunter's music and I draw alot of inspiration from your work.
Anyway, one question I have is: Will the complete collection of the color spectrum be released on a physical cd? I know its available in vinyl but I have nothing in which to play vinyl with, and I know its on itunes but I would really prefer to have a physical copy of the cd. Thanks!
Is there one solid concept behind the color spectrum, or is it varied from EP to EP? When coming up with ideas for songs, do you specifically focus on a genre or two, or do you just naturally span across that many genres?
