Cloquet native Tony Petersen was on the road with The Social Animals when the pandemic hit in 2020 and their tour came to an abrupt end. Since then, he's kept busy making music at home in the Twin Cities; not only did he release new music with his previous band Saint Anyway and an album with his uncle Kurt Petersen under the name Love + Effort, but he also put out a solo album under the name Ditchbird. He shared songs from that last project when he joined us for a virtual session that aired April 30, 2021.
