When we first stumbled across Bayonne’s new album, we were absolutely mesmerized from start-to-finish. This one-man army brings the sensational ability to create an immersive listening experience, both on record and at his live shows, which is no easy feat. After being incapsulated for the better half of an hour, we decided to reach out and set up an interview with him ahead of his show at the Lost Lake in Denver, Colorado. Here’s what went down.
TMN: Hey Roger, welcome to the Mile High City. Is this your first time here?
B: I’ve played here a couple of times, back when I was doing a folk thing three years ago. I’ve been here a lot more than I’ve played here too.
TMN: You’re in the midst of a pretty lengthy tour, which included a few showcases down in Austin for SXSW. As an Austinite, what did those showcases mean to you?
TMN: Also, as someone who calls Austin home, do you all have a secret celebration when SXSW is over so you can resume normal life?
