"a rawness that implores your ears to listen ... a cleverly disguised poet ... gut-wrenching lyrics and guitar licks that feed your compulsion to sing along with him."

“You never write a word you didn't mean to write. I'll sit down with a pen and paper and put out a verse that I just don't understand...it doesn't make sense or the idea pulls a muscle doing verbal acrobatics. But then right below it I'll write another stanza that puts it all into perspective, or the first stanza will help me realize what I really wanted to say in a song. It's dangerous to cross things out or throw them away before really analyzing them.”
