i’ve been a fan of Switchfoot since 1999 (my first show was their New Way to be Human release show in Del Mar… Jerome was in the opening band, Fold Zandura (their last(?) show) and Andrew was in All Together Separate a band i knew of coz his mom was my choir teacher…) and though their recent release, Fading West, isn’t really my favorite, this video IS. thanks Chad and Drew!

A Boy and His Kite is music from Colorado artist Dave Wilton. Originating from the Midwest, Wilton’s sound parallels his journey from the flatlands of his birth to the mountains he calls home. On A Boy & His Kite’s debut self-titled album he constructs layers of indie rock seamlessly woven with thoughtful folk lyrics and instrumentation.
