NPR recognizes “The Smooth Swing Of Subway Etiquette”

Thanks to NPR for their January 3, 2016 report about my song “Stand Right,” which celebrates DC’s unwritten rule of escalator etiquette. I wrote the song in 2010, and recorded it in 2014 with Aaron Myers. We released a single of the track early last year, and included it on Aaron’s holiday album “Snowing In Vegas,” which was released in December 2015.

NPR reporter Yu Sun Chin interviewed Metro riders about their experience with this “escalator code,” and spoke to Aaron and me about the genesis of the song and our experiences performing it. She also stopped by Mr. Henry’s on Capitol Hill to hear one of Aaron’s live shows and record a segment of our live performance of this tune.

The result was an entertaining and informative 2-minute radio report, which I encourage you to listen to on the NPR site (if you didn’t already hear us on the radio).
