ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"5 Rocky Years"
The initial inspiration for this song came from hearing "Jackson" with Johnny Cash and June Carter singing. I liked the idea of writing a duet were the singers are more or less arguing. In keeping it fun sounding, it naturally came out as a country song.

"No Opinion"
I have no opinion about this song

"Alone"
I struggled with the arrangement of this song. For a long time I could not decide if i should strum the guitar, finger-pick it, or a combo of both. Why decide on one when I can have it all? This tune has a beautiful 3 part acoustic guitar arrangement that includes a baritone guitar. Love how the pedal steel sounds. That's John Pirruccello playing (Guitarist for Keith Richards, Nicholas Tremulis, Brad Peterson).

I wouldn't normally write a oh poor me breakup song but this had some nice visuals and I think the idea behind it is pretty original. I think someone hearing this song and being in that state of mind where they just involved in the ending a romantic relationship might really connect with this.

"Plastic Jesus"
"Plastic Jesus" is an American folk song written by Ed Rush and George Cromarty in 1957. This is my interpretation of the song with some original lines added. Ed Rush has stated that the inspiration for the song came from a religious radio station from Del Rio, Texas in the mid 1950s. The station was allegedly run by a dentist and religious fanatic who "sold the most outrageous stuff imaginable, all with magical healing properties.
