Episode 455: In Conversation with Ryan Walsh (Hallelujah The Hills)
After garnering national attention and widespread acclaim for Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968 – one of the best books ever written about rock music, Van Morrison, Boston, or possibly all of the above – singer/bandleader Ryan Walsh knew that his next project would be a new Hallelujah The Hills album, and now I’m You, the band’s magnum opus is here. A travelogue of indie-rock history, existential fear, and joyful salvation, I’m You celebrates the search for truth in art, the truth about ourselves, and how our connections to each other are what will save us in the end. Maybe.
Tune in as we sit down with the author/songwriter to go deep inside the creation of one of 2019’s best albums, one that will hopefully, and at long last, launch Hallelujah The Hills into the stratosphere where they belong.
