Songs Along the Highway
'Songs Along The Highway' is a thematic album of 11 songs recorded live. The acoustic arrangements are simple but effective, supporting the impact of the stories and images delivered by an expressive voice and strong melodies. Each song is like a chapter of a book, describing in unique detail a persistent search for an almost undefinable goal, while looking back and into the future at the same time. The title cut serves an an epilogue, with it's images of a family evicted by a conflicted sheriff, a tied-up pony's struggle to be free and the narrator's dream of a canyon sunset that is both beautiful and foreboding, hinting that his apparent impatience and indifference toward others is born of his own desperation to continue the search in the face of limited time. Chances are you will recognize yourself somewhere in the words to these songs, right about the time you start to sing along. This is acoustic songwriting in the best tradition. An excellent choice for a long drive...
