  • Where We Live

    For this New Sounds, listen to music from the band itsnotyouitsme, where Grey McMurray is the guitar-playing half and Caleb Burhans is the violin-playing half.  Hear them as that duo, and separately with some of their other projects.  One of these is a collaborative work between So Percussion and Grey McMurray called “Where (we) Live.” This series of songs is about each members' personal homes, the artistic home when they join forces, and then a questioning of all these homes by purposefully inviting the unknown to “come on over.”
