"The following songs (political, philosophical and confessional meanderings) were written chez moi in the heart of the Green-Mountain State of Vermont over the summers of 2012 and 13, and then recorded and produced by Nick Buxton @ Basement Studios, in Paris, France, between 2013 and 2015, with a stream of extremely talented musicians, including Will Patton of Bakersfield, Vt , the inimitable Lucie Rouits, since-childhood buddy Thierry Ringelstein and the notorious Louis Alfonso of ‘Bad Manners’ fame. Like they say in East Africa, “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together...”
The album is dedicated to the Ye’kuana people of the Amazon (So'to), who gave me 10 years of friendhsip, trust and enlightenment and dare I add, wisdom. Thanks to everyone I ever met in their company, in that immensely beautiful, primeval jungle, including all the great students and mentors from visiting universities with whom I bonded for Life."
