Kevin Morby recently moved from New York to LA, but he took his time doing it. From September 2012 until a month or two ago, Morby lived nowhere. He moved out of his Brooklyn apartment last fall and toured for basically a year straight, playing bass for folk-rock act Woods when he wasn’t on the road co-fronting his own band, The Babies, and recording a solo album when he wasn’t doing either of those, which explains why his debut Harlem River conveys the maturity and road-weariness of someone much older than 25.
“I definitely feel older than 25,” says Morby, “but at the same time I feel way younger, which is probably something a lot of people find themselves in. New York made me feel very old.”
