Spawned in Clovis New Mexico and recorded in San Diego, under the watchful eye of producer Jeff Berkley, there are 16 tracks here. A stellar group of musicians helped, notably: the legendary Eric Rigler on Uilleann Pipes and Penny Whistles (Braveheart, Titanic and Outlander sound tracks), and Dennis Caplinger, multi-instrumentalist (Banjo, Dobro, Fiddle and Mandolin—credits with JJ Cale, Eric Clapton, Byron Berline and Dan Crary). Arrangements range from Bass, Drums, Piano, Organ and Guitar to traditional folk combos of Guitar, Banjo, Dobro, Fiddle, Mandolin, Uilleann Pipes and Penny Whistles, as well as solo Guitar, and Resonator Guitar pieces, with and without Upright Bass. Gospel and female background singers add tenderness and fun where needed.

These are songs of Love, Loss, Longing, Laughter and Transformation
