Things of Youth


“As a member of beloved Bay Area indie rockers The Rum Diary and post-rockers Shuteye Unison, as well as founder of record label Parks and Records, Jon Fee has been no stranger to the local music community. But even if you’ve followed his career since the beginning, you’ve never heard anything like his newest offering: For the first time, Fee is releasing a solo record under the name The Things of Youth.”

Members: Jon Fee with noble contributions from friends & family
Home: London
Favorite park: London Fields and Zion National Park
Green advice: If you can pack it in, you can pack it out. Good. Now get out there. Get your hands dirty and find your inner Dick Proenneke.
