“The Sawyer Sessions started simple enough: new town, new building, new vibe. We asked ourselves ‘How can we integrate ourselves into the creative juices flowing just beneath the surface of this historic, southern town?’
Named after our nearly 100-year-old office building, The Sawyer Sessions are one part video series, one part mobile recording lab, and one part way to introduce us to our neighbors. But instead of bringing by a pie, we brought a collection of artists with diverse backgrounds and styles – Grammy Award winners, noted international songwriters, all legendary performers.
We drop them into to everyday life situations and record them at restaurants, galleries and private homes – the only rule is that it has to be within the roughly 4.3 square miles of our new hometown.
This EP documents the best of those first two years of performances and serves as our ‘map’ of Hillsborough, North Carolina.”
