On this episode of INSIDE MUSIC, host James Shotwell connects with Dan Faughdner, the singer-songwriter behind San Diego folk punk favorites Sledding With Tigers. Together, the two discuss everything from the origins of SWT, to the story behind their latest release, ‘Not The Beatles Yet,’ and even find time to touch on the state of folk punk in 2015. There is also an explanation as to why Sledding With Tigers rarely tour, as well as a nice discussion on the toll touring can take on the life of an individual who is trying to establish themselves as a responsible adult.

The music you hear in the intro to ‘Inside Music’ this week is “High Wasted Shorts” from Sledding With Tigers. You can learn more about that song, as well as the album it hails from, on SWT’s official website.
