Euliss’ songs seem autobiographical—a life’s scrapbook of adventures and picturesque characters met along the way. Leaving home at an early age marks a pivotal chapter, and without it none of this would be told now. Some of it is wistful, questioning life but with acceptance (“Waiting for It to Rain”), some of it flames with rage (“Should’ve Burned It Down”).”
