Album Notes
This project introduces a lot of mythical, colorful, and derivative characters. There's old Gerard who sit's, complaining at the local store and Howdy who was inspired by a man I new in Colorado for a brief time. There are family stories with real people like Death Valley Scotty who was bigger than life, JP who owned the bar, and Jud who owned the limousine. Stories of places, like a farm called "Earth Dance", where I spent some time.

Most of these songs started on an acoustic guitar and all stay close to that in some way. There's a lot of blues inside these songs because I spent a lot of time playing the blues and Rock & Roll. I loved the recordings of Lightning Hopkins, Brownie McGee & Sonny Terry, and Muddy Waters, along with Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and C,S,N,& Y. There's folk / country influences all through these songs because that was the Kelly family music I heard growing up. My Dad played the tenor banjo and I'm playing my Mom's old slide guitar on Montana in the Spring. This recording is my way of letting people know where I've been and what's going on with me and in that, is a retrospective. Many of the characters in these songs are still present in my life and in that, are relevant and current. I hope there is peace in these songs for you. Enjoy - Willy Kelly
