EPISODE 23: DAVID BAZAN

In this episode David talks about how his evangelical Christian faith fell apart and how he built his music career through intimate house shows.  Warning: This episode contains some explicit language.

Interviewer: Jonathan Williams

ABOUT DAVID

David Bazan has never had the answers. His first two solo records, 2009’s Curse Your Branches and 2011’s Strange Negotiations lived inside questions. Questions of politics, of relationships, of addiction, and of God. For anyone looking to art to remove doubt, Bazan is not that refuge. With a catalogue that orbits the darkest corners of the human experience, his songs are the tiny pinprick of light, the first breath coming up for air, the rest stop on a trip with no destination.
