After all these years of singing these songs what I can definitely say is that every single word and note has had a very special meaning for me as it describes in a multiplicity of ways who I am, how I feel and where I happen to be. These four American songs plus an original inspired during a trip in the Keys (Florida), are a small token of appreciation and respect for the hundreds of friends, whether these be musicians or not, whom I’ve met through the years across the ocean and who have contributed to the shaping of my personality in a variety of ways. I cannot but be more humble and grateful at the same time! I hope you enjoy this American musical road trip with its dark and bright colors and I hope and pray we all stay free.
“Always be, through the dark, always FREE!”
Much love, Panayotis
