Daily Distraction: Find the 'Open Road' with Winter Makes Sailors
Listen to the new single from local musician Sean Gardner's long-running project
Last time we checked in with local singer, songwriter and guitarist Sean Gardner, he was hunkering down in the studio and launching a new band, Minnows, adding to an already impressive list of Gardner-involved Columbus bands like the West Ghost, Bookmobile, Winter Makes Sailors, Rented Lips, Denovo and Kopaz, not to mention the Sgt. Peppercorn's Marathon collective.
While we wait for new music from the West Ghost and Minnows, Gardner has released a new Winter Makes Sailors song, "Open Road," a contemplative tune with mostly acoustic guitar and subtle ambient textures. "I wish I could find the open road/Drive all night yet have no place to go," Gardner sings.
