    Gabriel Kahane was on NPR's All Things Considered. He spoke with host Ari Shapiro about his new album, Book of Travelers, and performed from it. "It's a plea for empathy," Kahane says. "I think songwriting is a way to deliver that message. I think empathy is one of the primary currencies of any type of storytelling and songwriting is no exception to that." "Sometimes I can't believe I'm lucky enough to hear an intimate performance like this," says Shapiro. "And then I get to share it with you all." Hear it here.

    Composer, pianist, and singer Gabriel Kahane's Nonesuch Records debut album, Book of Travelers, is out now. It comprises his musical travelogue about the looping railway journey across the US he embarked upon the day after the 2016 election. He left behind his cell phone and other internet-connected devices, spending the next two weeks with dozens of strangers whose stories are woven into the cycle. "[An] articulate, musically far-reaching travelogue," says Uncut. "Exquisitely crafted songs … Musically fascinating and hauntingly empathetic." Kahane begins a tour on September 7, when the album is out on vinyl.
