Sam Roberts Band’s latest album TERRAFORM, released back in October, was the result of the group locking themselves in studio for the month of March. Roberts explains, “Terraforming is the concept of going to another planet and making it viable and livable for humans. But in a sense, for this record it can be seen as planting the seeds for that sort of renewal in your own life – that regardless of how much you have broken the parts of your life along the way, there is always a chance to start over.”
And there’s a chance he went through a LOT of guitar picks throughout the recording. Here he is discussing what makes a great pick, and why he’s so picky about his.
