Album Notes
Hearing the songs of Michael Smith in this day and age is like reading an anthology of short stories by Hemingway after decades of only comic books. It's a realization that songs can hold a whole lot more than they're usually expected to hold, that they can possess a genuine sense of place as evocative and magical as the finest literature...

His songs are so resonant in layers of myth and magic, and so perfectly enhanced by the genuine beauty of his melodies and instrumental arrangements, that you can listen to a single one over and over for an afternoon and feel satisfied.
Song Talk magazine

Singer-songwriter Smith's ruminations on aging and ephemerality draw much of their power from the glistening tone and unfaltering taste of his imaginative steel-string accompaniments.
