Burnside Album Details

innocence mission, the, Hello I Feel the Same

"Don and Karen (McCullough) Peris formed the innocence mission with school friend and bassist Mike Bitts while the three were students at the Catholic high school in their hometown, Lancaster Pa, where they still live. Since the late 90s, they’ve released a dozen albums while making a conscious decision to devote themselves to raising their two children. About this album title and first song (Hello I Feel the Same), Karen Peris explains: “I'm thankful that writing songs can be like joining in a conversation with people. I love listening to someone else talking, but for me, speaking is not easy.” “What I always come back to… is the small song that makes careful observations about everyday life. This is what makes the music by The Innocence Mission so moving and profound.” Sufjan Stevens "
