Bruce Lesnick has been playing and writing music for over thirty years. His triplet sons, Gabriel, Ruben and Sammy, were the inspiration for several songs on this album.
Lesnick is known for his irreverent, funny folk music style, and can often be seen performing at peace marches, anti-war protests and rallies for progressive causes throughout the Pacific Northwest. His music is insightful, inspiring and uncompromising, yet laced with original melodies and harmonies that you'll want to hear over and over again.
