Steve Gunn is one of today’s most meditative guitarists—each of his plucks feel like a gentle, loving nudge. The singer/songwriter celebrates his birthday today (April 20), so we’re sharing his gorgeous Daytrotter session from 2014. Gunn released three records that year—one with Mike Cooper, one with Mike Gangloff and one solo album titled Way Out Weather. In this four-track performance, Gunn plays three tracks from his 2013 album Time Off, plus “Wildwood” from Way Out Weather.
