I used to play solo shows mostly, especially during the "From The Blue House" and "Choreography" eras. Since I wrote all the songs with just my voice and a guitar or piano, they can all work that way...

From there we started working on new songs and recording them and that's what eventually became the "Family Ghost" album, released in early 2017.
