The Secretly Canadian Newsletter

Erin Osmons (Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Pitchfork Review) upcoming family-authorized Jason Molina biography, Riding with the Ghost, is an in-depth look at one of the most important songwriters of the last 20 years. It features interviews with every important figure in the Molina story. We are so excited by this incredible book that we dug through the expansive Molina archives to unearth the very first radio session Songs: Ohia ever performed. Recorded at Oberlin Colleges WOBC in the fall of 1994 by Tom Colley, this recording features an interview with Molina along with him performing early versions of songs that would eventually be re-recorded formally for release, and many songs that are officially being made available now for the first time ever.

Riding With the Ghost will be published as a 236-page hardback edition by Rowman & Littlefield in May 2017. Bundle orders will be shipped shortly after we receive books from the publisher. This limited edition LP is being made available only for those who pre-order this bundle now.
