Born a long way from home with only songs to guide me back, I have traveled the American musical landscape for many years searching for the ticket, the key, the road that will bring me back home. The journey has been one of truth and beauty and of lies and deception...of pounding rain and scorching sun...of mountain passes and dead end streets. The landscape changes frequently and paths appear and disappear as the sun rises and the moon sets. My map has been faulty at times. Nevertheless, the songs carry clues to the direction to travel and at times coincide with the map. Therefore there is always the possibility I may find my way home.
