Kevin Henthorn of Cape Francis joins us in the studio to talk about his new album, Deep Water. Henthorn explains that the album is born out of living out a double life of working a 9 to 5 every day as well as being an artist. The album explores the dichotomy of both worlds.
Henthorn started playing guitar when he was 9 years old after listening to blues music with his parents. After learning classical guitar, he began to learn pop punk and metal guitar.
After the breakup of his band Stone Cold Fox, Henthorn took an emotional hit. He began to listen to more indie folk music, including Bon Iver and Angel Olsen. These artists changed the way he wrote music as he started writing his first album as Cape Francis.
One of his most beautiful music videos is his song Nobody. Henthorn explains that Nobody is about how you don’t need to be told that you need nature in your life, it’s something that you inherently know. At the same time, you get caught up and forget that it exists. He shot the music video in Brunswick, Maine with a drone and a bike.
Cape Francis will be playing at the Elsewhere Rooftop in Brooklyn on Monday, July 15. Click here for more information about tour dates and how to purchase tickets.
