I have been told I should write more about my tunes, my thought process...the meaning behind the song. In fact, my own label says I am negligent in this matter. But i have always felt it's most important what the listener hears, deciphers from the tune.

I will tell you that Big Bus Dream is about reaching for a dream. I would rather fall short of something great than succeed at nothing of consequence. The music is about failing at life but still lifting yourself up... because there's an unfullfuilled dream out there with my/your name on it. 

So, if you are out there and listening, most important to me is what do you hear?

Thanks to Dan Herman over at Radio Crystal Blue for playing tracks this week off our current release, Big Dream Baby.
