‘Narrow Stairs’ Turns Ten

Where does the time go? ‘Narrow Stairs’ is 10 years old today. After ‘Plans,’ we didn’t exactly know where we were going, but we knew we couldn’t go back. Ben found Big Sur. Jason built a studio. Nick wrote a bass line. Chris committed to the tape machine. We started making ‘Narrow Stairs’ in August of 2007, the weeks turned into months, and as the album came into focus, the future did too.
