"MY MORNING JACKET LINE-UP EVOLVES
We wanted to send you all a note letting you know about the recent changes in My Morning Jacket’s line-up. After four years of passion, sweat, traveling the world and spreading the love, Danny Cash and Johnny Quaid have decided to hang up their instruments and pursue other things in life. For an “In Their Own Words” vibe on how and where they’re going, click here. Please know that Danny and John are still part of My Morning Jacket’s fabric and friendship and where they will be missed dearly, we couldn’t be happier for them to take their lives in a direction they’re most comfortable with.
On the road with My Morning Jacket are Carl Broemel (guitar) and Bo Koster (keyboards). Both Carl and Bo came to My Morning Jacket through “friend-of-a-friend” recommendations and as fans of the music. After just a few rehearsals we were a little taken aback as to how well they knew the music and felt about it the same way we all do. So, we hope to see you at a show sometime soon and that this evolution is met with the perspective that the only thing consistent in life is change.
Our love to Danny and John, our welcome aboard to Carl and Bo and our thanks to you for having open minds and hearts to the future.
Patrick, Jim & Tommy"
