Grand Rapids musician, Jed LaPlant, is out with a new album now, I'll See You Again. His first release, the lyrics throughout are heartfelt, authentic and also otherworldly, the production is spare but rich, and in spite of only singing for the past 4 years, the vocals are on point. 

He sat down with us and was ready to speak candidly about creating this album, losing his father, Don LaPlant, taking a road trip out west, and finding his voice. Listen to the interview below.

Songs included: 'This Lonely Road', 'When I Was Younger'

A northern Minnesota winter can be hard on apple trees. In my case, when the snow melted it revealed that two of our trees were completely “girdled” and a third was partially eaten. Girdling kills trees. It means that something (vole? rabbit?) had gnawed off the bark around the entire trunk of two trees in a swath about 2” wide.

In Southeast Asia's only landlocked country, the Mekong River is a lifeline. From a slow boat heading up the river in Laos, you'll see fishermen working in their boats, riverside farms where bananas grow, and domesticated buffalo lazing. Occasionally a ferry chugs by. From time to time, steps leading to a riverside village become visible on the banks through the foliage. The wind is swift, and the brown fresh water laps up onto the side of the boat.

Just over 9 miles north of Luang Prabang, a startling aberration appears: five giant concrete pylons rising out of the water.
