If you want to find the pulse of a culture, discover where the innovators are finding inspiration. So with that in mind, we decided to go right to the source and ask some of our favorite artists what they enjoyed most over the past year. Since Glide covers a diverse helping of artforms, we sought out a truly eclectic mix and asked them all sorts of questions, ranging from great music to great moments. With praises you’d expect and many others you would not (see Keller’s affinity for naked kayaking), it’s a candid sneak peak to life off stage. Though, coming as no surprise, it seems every tourbus rolled the highways this year with Hail To The Thief on repeat.
Greg Kessler has a natural ability to candidly capture musicians and the world in their most natural states. From Karl Denson, Phish, and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones to Death Valley National Park, Europe, and the art of dance, Kessler delivers to us a fresh view of both humans and nature.
