FATHER JOHN MISTY
"I had to give it a name, so I kind of wanted to confuse people with this ridiculous red herring [and] admittedly patently ridiculous name that’s also phonetically beautifully and looks good in print. Sort of a name I’ve decided to give to this weird, subconscious, dream fragmentation I have of this homosexual, shamanic drifter who bounces around [and] stirs up weird shit in my dreams. Like making out with my brother. So I guess the aggregate of all those things just felt right. But really and truly, the whole thing is just kind of about the fact that it really doesn’t matter what the fuck you call yourself, as long as the goods are in the explicit honesty."
Colin Hanks has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors. His natural talent and raw energy have secured him a place as one of Hollywood’s young leading men. Colin was nominated for an Emmy and the Critics Choice Television Awards for his role in FX’s critically acclaimed mini-series “Fargo.” Prior to “Fargo,” Colin made several memorable guest appearances on the popular crime series “NCIS,” “Burning Love,” and the Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning series’, “Dexter” and “Mad Men.” On the silver screen, he was most recently seen in the historical drama Parkland and The Guilt Trip alongside Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand, and he recently wrapped production on No Stranger than Love, a romantic comedy with Alison Brie and Justin Chatwin.
Josh Tillman has been recording/releasing solo albums since 2003 and drummed for Fleet Foxes for four years. In 2012, he released the critically acclaimed album Fear Fun under the name Father John Misty. The album consists of such disparate elements as Waylon Jennings, Harry Nilsson, Arthur Russell, “All Things Must Pass,” and “Physical Graffiti,” often within the same song. Lyrically, his absurdist fever dreams of pain and pleasure elicit, in equal measures, the blunt descriptive power of Bukowski or Brautigan, the hedonist-philosophy of Oscar Wilde and the dried-out wit of LoudonWainwright III.
