i’ve been digging through our history and updating this new version of our website in an attempt to make our lives seem more interesting for people who don’t read anymore, which is most of you….in fact if you’ve gotten this far, you deserve a treat of some kind, like an iced cream.
i’ve added loads of photographs and the like.
feel free to take a gander. better still. view it on your smart phones too.
the site is still super rough, and there’s much to be done.
there are still a lot of links that are not running yet, but don’t worry you’ll get the hang of it.
i’m having fun, and i hope you do too.
it is our hope here at THEMES, that this site will be a nice place for you all to come and vacation from your own reality while you’re propping up your desks at work, or surfing the web on your iPhone while riding your bike or driving your car with expired tabs on the free way.
don’t for get your helmet and seat belt apps!
with LOVE from Portland.
as many know we’ve been in the studio, on and off, for the past couple months working on a bunch of songs for our new album, as well as a few other cool surprises. we’re having a blast with the new jams, and can’t wait to share it with y’all. stay tuned for some sneak peeks at the album art, and maybe a bit of something to hear as well. we’ll be back on the road in a town near you, in no time. much love. MR. THEMES
hello again. it’s been a long month of songwriting and we’ve been working harder than ever towards today!

I remember looking up through the clouds at a patch of clear sky where the stars had shown through. There was a lull then. There was a short period of time where nothing at all happened anywhere in the world and everything was still. It was just then, at that moment, a blast of light flashes an entire year gone by with blinding intensity, leaving only a tail of smoke, wagging up towards the sky. A calm feeling in the beginning days of the year lend way to greater reflection.
With so many great things, and so much thanks to give for all that happened in the year 2011 it’s difficult to know where to begin. The addition our our Friend and Drummer Nick Dayka has been the most monumental for us, thus we push forward into new territories on many levels. There is much music being made and i suppose one could expect new releases from THEMES some time early this Spring, as well as some other surprises.
In Honor of all people, places, and things that have contributed to the creation of this musical group called THEMES we are focusing our efforts in an act of appreciation for what we have and an act of solidarity in observation of NATIONAL BUY NOTHING DAY.
feel free to go to the bandcamp page and download all of our albums for free this weekend.

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents in Big Sur has been the host to some incredible shows recently including Arcade Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gillian Welch, MGMT, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Fleet Foxes among others. Continuing in the spirit of Communion by presenting distinctive performances in unique settings, Communion In The Redwoods will take place at Fernwood in the majestic Redwoods of Big Sur, California.

In addition to the previously announced Communion Tour from October 18 in Los Angeles through November 12 in Boston, and the monthly Communion shows taking place at Café DuNord in San Francisco,
Communion is the brainchild of Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett, his close ally, Kevin Jones, and renowned producer Ian Grimble. Formed in London in 2006, it began as a monthly showcase, known as Communion nights, at Notting Hill Arts Club, where bands would share different musicians and collaborations often provided fresh material. Communion very quickly became the home to some of the U.K.’s most accomplished and praised young musicians as well as the go-to team for promoting and encouraging fresh, emerging talent in London and beyond. Communion offered a live platform to artists including Laura Marling, The Vaccines’ Justin Young, Marcus Foster and Anna Calvi (who was promptly selected as one of the BBC’s Sounds Of 2011 nominees after Communion’s early support).
Built solely on a freedom of expression, an ear for a tune and a celebration of exactly what the live music experience should be all about, Communion and its broad-minded, ever-evolving family have made light work of discovering and nurturing what MOJO calls a “new generation of songwriter.”
Heralded across the British press for its community spirit and an enviable reputation for introducing some of the globe’s most highly acclaimed young acts, Communion’s events have become the U.K.’s foremost home for eclectic, exciting parties to respectful, passionate music fans.
Ben Lovett, Communion co-founder/Mumford & Sons notes, “We founded Communion as a way for people to get together and play music without all the hassle of dealing with money-grabbing venue promoters. No matter what the venue size, they’ve always been amazingly intimate occasions.
We’re incredibly excited to be launching Communion in America, where not only are there literally thousands of excellent musicians that we want to promote, but it’s also a country full of passionate music fans that we want to feel part of the Communion experience. It’s a massive deal for us to expand, and we cannot wait to get cracking.”
