Great musician writes words worth writing.
Multiple WAMMY award-winning instrumentalist Seth Kibel has lived near the nation's capitol a long time, and pays attention. He lends his mind, wit and heart to our current national dilemmas in this very musical romp through the DC Swamps of the Donald and his monstrous minions. Check this out. Spread the sounds and words.
