Local music blogger Heather Browne is back with another amazing Chapel Session, this time featuring Glen Phillips from Toad the Wet Sprockett.

Browne Writes:

There are the artists that age with you, that burrow warm like a nest around your body and your heart as you grow. They are the ones that you can look back at after having lived through a few more years and heartbreaks and deeper joys than you ever predicted, and find that their songs can still bloom for you, can still come along with you through the currents.

For me, Glen Phillips and the music of Toad the Wet Sprocket does exactly that. We’ve both got some crinkles around our eyes when we smile, and we’re both about a thousand metaphorical miles from where we were in high school, but something in there still connects wonderfully.

Here’s “Return to Me” from the Glen Phillips Session at Shove Chapel on the Colorado College campus:
