And it was 10 years ago that I bought Shanti her banjo and we started creating music together all that Summer….working on music that would end up on that album. I can still feel the presence of those moments now...in our backyard then…sometimes like it is happening now. I was thinking back then…oh Wow, this is very Special…Damn this Feels soooo Beautiful!!! And now Ten years fast forward…Seven albums, Shows, Festivals, endless hauls from Maine to California and back, three SXSW showcases, soooo many European tours……Time flies! Happy 10 Year Anniversary to Shanti and All You Folks out there who have supported Our Music!
