VENTS Interviews Tobias The Owl

“I was confronting a lot of existential questions,” says Elijah Dhavvan in a recent interview with Vents Magazine. The Tobias The Owl leader had been asked about the thought process that he’d undertaken while creating his new LP A Safe Harbor For Wayward Echoes. According to the songwriter, “There were questions that I was trying to face about my own mortality. Battling leukemia made those questions more acute and brought them to the forefront of my experience. I was really trying to answer a lot of questions that are big and fundamental, like: Who am I? Why am I alive? What’s my role in the universe? And then after I was regaining my health, I started asking questions about how I should find my way back into a world that sometimes seems like it doesn’t have enough space for each of us.”

More deep thoughts abound in the interview, which also delves into the meaning behind the album’s title. Read the full thing here. Get the album spinning at your station, and see Tobias The Owl on tour:
