These days, we all want love letters from Father John Misty. While the stage persona of former Seattle based songwriter Josh Tillman rose to indie stardom following his somewhat calculated invention and an inventive debut filled with 70’s inspired soft rock, expansive folk melodies and nearly excessively smart but always expressively conceived lyrics, he truly sealed his place in our hearts by turning back inward in his honest examination of romantic relationships on his second LP, I Love You, Honeybear. (Read more about that great album here.) Though often aloof with critics and reviewers, the hip-swaying crooner got downright cozy with his fans when he followed up his terrific set at the Capitol Hill Block Party with an acoustic performance at the Columbia City Theater during a benefit for KEXP’s new home campaign. Now you can enjoy this intimate performance by yourself, or with your own loved ones, by watching the video here:
