Glen Phillips - “Everything Matters” (Live at Messiah College, Grantham, PA (11-15-2003))

There is nothing that doesn’t matter
Every word is a seed that scatters
Everything matters

Here’s another live cut from a Glen Phillips solo acoustic show, this time from Messiah College in Grantham, PA on November 15, 2003. The sound quality of this show is excellent, and the setlist is not bad either, featuring a good mix of Toad the Wet Sprocket numbers, Glen’s solo songs, his yet-to-be-released-at-the-time material, and a Gillian Welch cover. Accompanying Glen on a few songs is Teitur Lassen, a singer-songwriter from the Faroe Islands near Denmark, with whom he played a set earlier the same day at the XM studios for a live radio broadcast of The Loft Sessions (and which I would also link here if it were still available in the ever-shifting sands of the interwebs—maybe I’ll post one of the tracks from that show at some point).

If memory serves (and most days it doesn’t, just so there’s no confusion), “Everything Matters” exists only as live performances and in demo form from the Abulum sessions. Speaking of which, I also have a bunch of demos and outtakes from those sessions someplace that Glen had actually posted on his website back in the day. I need to see if I can resurrect those.

Anyway, you can check out the entire Messiah College show at the Internet Archive.
