Pulling into Mt. Vernon to pay last respects to a lost uncle, I began to think that this was the place to settle my life for now and carry out a directly accessible music project. My experience with the Heartland Recording studios led me to the decision to roll tape on some simple, straightforward tunes. Organic music that has let its hair grow, and has stared into the sun ..
Influences for this material include Willy Mason, Devendra Banhart, They Might Be Giants, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and my cousin Michael.
