Calvin was one of the first interviewees for Engine Ears. We met at Tape Op Con 2003 and from there I travelled to Olympia to shoot him recording Old Time Relijun’s album, “List Light”.

Heavy Trash and the Sadies Kitchener, Ontario 2006

I was fortunate enough to meet and interview both Jon and Matt for my film Engine Ears.
