Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop burn bright on Love Letter for Fire
The pair performs two songs from the record — Know the Wild That Wants You and Valley Clouds— and sit down with Shad to discuss how they explored intimacy within their platonic creative partnership.
"Make a fool of yourself, early on," advises Hoop, who recalls sending Beam a very rough, unformed idea to kick off their collaboration. "I didn't edit it. I didn't think about it."
"I think she taught me to be spontaneous. And I taught her the power of editing," laughs Beam.
