Album Notes
The more records I make and hear, the more I realize that I can't stand overly compressed and processed music. The people who are still making records the old way—real, raw and with heart—those are the ones I want to hear. And those are the ones I want to make. Fred Gillen Jr. and I went back into this one the same way we went into the last album—I brought in tons and tons of crumpled up lyric sheets of songs I'd written in the past year, mostly in the past week, and we'd see what fits. I like recording songs when they are new, and about six of the 11 on this album were like that. No click track—just me and my guitar, and whatever comes out. And then we added the sweet sounds of Abbie Gardner on dobro and lapsteel, Oliver Hill on fiddle, Andy LaDue on drums and Steve Kirkman on electric guitar, plus Fred and me on whatever we could get our hands on. I hope that people hear this album as part of my ongoing learning experience, about myself and about writing songs. "Typical American Tragedy" is a statement of where I was when I wrote and recorded these songs, and I'm proud of it as something people can take home and enjoy. Love, loss, fiddle girls, upstate girls, country music stars, soldiers, dancing, carnivals, mistakes—got 'em all right here.

Great original artist
Swings back and forth between folk, pop, and rock effortlessly. Reminds me a young David Wilcox (American). Look forward to hearing great things from this kid in the future!

I realy like the CD. Looking forward to see him at the Tonder Festival at the end of August
