Highlights like the opening "Ohio" and "Letters and Drawings" ...

Highlights like the opening "Ohio" and "Letters and Drawings" are evocative portraits of urban malaise, while the rollicking "Honey Baby" sounds like nothing so much as a long-lost honky tonk classic.

    I Wouldn't Pass This One Up

    I got this as a promo CD for my work with one of bn's competitors. I put it away at first because I thought it was just some starving artist with no talent... a night later I gave it a listen, and then another... and after that I didn't stop listening to it, and I introduced 2 people to the CD who went out and bought it themselves..
