This is truly one of the most fascinating interviews I've ever had the pleasure to host. Derek Webb tackles one of the topics that many of us have been thinking about lately-the human/technology relationship and all the pros and cons and craziness that goes along with said relationship.
On Ctrl, Webb places his acoustic axe in the service of his most ambitious project to date. It tells the tale of an unnamed character that melts the lines of physical and virtual realities until it's hard to tell man from machine, the digits from the DNA.
Here's how Webb explains it: "It's an album about one man's desire for something he cannot have because it isn't real, the journey he goes on pursuing it, and the costs of that journey. But essentially, 'Ctrl' is both personal autopsy and cultural observation about how we use technology to try and control our lives, and my concern that it could ultimately have more control of us."

We had many good shows at Algonquin Seaport Theater and the view was spectacular!
Vic's acoustic show from 7/8/11 was one of the best! Andrea Ceresa joined Vic on stage for some backing vocals. Vic's new album "Broken Heart Tattoo" is outstanding and he plays many of the songs from it as well as some interesting covers from Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles. You can get "Broken Heart Tattoo" as a digital download, CD and LP-how cool is that!
