Confession & Song: Pigeon John – “Time to Move Out”

GREAT SCOTT! Pigeon John hath blessed part one of our 3RD EPISODE with a nouveau song called “it’s time to move out”! inspired by one woman’s desire to kick her grown son out of her house, Pigeon John uses ragtime piano, dreamy strings, and percussion loops to turn mama’s infaticidal (ok maybe that’s a stretch) desire into pure pop delight! This confession was taken at the Artsplosure Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina.
