Stoplight Sessions is the songwriting video sketchbook of Matthew McAvene which began when McAvene decided to keep a guitar in the car to utilize time at Stoplights. But the Stoplight Sessions isn’t limited to Stoplight recordings. McAvene plays and writes while driving, parked, hiking in nature, and more. These videos feature his unique ‘One Take’ songwriting approach wherein songs are improvised and created out of thin air. Melody, chords, rhythm, and even words. ANTICIPATING was recorded while sitting in his parked car in Santa Barbara, CA.
