Episode 13: Fenced In


Welcome back to Talking Circles – a production of Osiris Media and Umphrey’s McGee. This is a podcast about the making of Asking For A Friend with the members of Umphrey’s McGee.


In Episode Thirteen, we hear Brendan Bayliss talk about “Fenced In,” which was a reaction to the protests of the Summer of 2020, and to the ongoing pandemic. As with a lot of songs, the concept existed for a while, but was brought together by a unique set of circumstances.


Jams which featured early hints of “Fenced In” are featured in this episode. The versions included are:


  • 2012-02-03 Minneapolis (Der Bluten Kat, first jam)
  • 2014-10-25 Grand Rapids (All In Time; lyrical)
  • 2012-05-25 Summer Camp (2×2)
