It's been five years since Matthew Houck released his last album as Phosphorescent. Back then, he was unmarried and living in the indie hotbed of Brooklyn, New York where he was determined to draw a line between his personal life and his music. These days, you'll find him in the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife and two kids.

Houck sat down with Tom Power to share some music off his new album C'est La Vie and discuss how fatherhood has changed his art.
