Set includes songs from “Lost Keys”, Sunday Morning Meltdown” and “Circle Round The Sun”.

My America

 “My America” is a modern folk-rock anthem in waiting, drawing inspiration from the wise writings of our country’s great thinkers and following the lineage of folk pioneers Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, who raised their voice in difficult uncertain times, providing a much-needed balm for a wounded nation."  
-American Songwriter Magazine (2020)
