SCOUT was birthed after a million and one brainstorming meetings about the who, what, where, why and especially the f'ing how this was going to get done. One thing we did at every meeting was throw out a list of names of people we really wanted to capture,  In one of these sessions, someone threw out 'Lower Dens'—because they happen to be playing (as they often do) over the studio airwaves. Initial thoughts were 'no way!' 'they're too big!' 'we'll never get them!' and then the next thoughts were 'why not?' 'hell yes!' 'let's go for it!' And the pursuit was on. Gregg our producer was solely responsible for tracking down Jana Hunter (and her people) and getting this made. Jana was the most agreeable, thoughtful 'rockstar' we've ever met. She chose her words carefully, but wasn't overly precious or protective. They just flowed, like poetry that was already forming inside her head. Together we created, in a very short amount of time, a beautiful piece that we're extremely proud of.

We feel that this is the start of a very good thing...
