Church was funny and honest. He told little stories about songs before playing them. He had a cheeky opinion on Milwaukee’s gloomy discourse that got some people’s attention. He played sweet songs like “Priscilla” that had even me swaying like a thirteen-year-old girl. Church was just excellent for the entirety of his performance and once again I was blessed with the quality of musicianship Salt Lake City attracts.
By the end of the show, good vibes were shared by all. Church had also invited people to hangout at the merchandise table and I cautiously walked over to once again attempt a handshake. This time around the handshake was accepted—Church was just as pleasant to talk to as he was to listen to. He stayed, meeting his fans till the last one walked out the door. He told us previously that he would not be back soon because after the tour, he will start a new “single-less,” non-label, burdened experiment. Church seemed so excited about this you couldn’t help but smile at his enthusiasm. If you remember, Sea Wolf came about from Church’s experiments while he was in the band Irving; so who knows what’s in store for us with this project. From all of us here in Salt Lake City, we thank you Sea Wolf for stopping by and were glad our weather’s better than Milwaukee
