Hey Friend, Thanks for your interest. - This is the 5th album I made. It was released in 2004. - I think I was grappling with my small-town Iowa roots quite a bit here. None of the characters are exactly me, and all of them are. - I had a good time writing in the voice of a missionary (in the song 'Amazon'), and then leaving him stranded on a riverbank awaiting his fate. - 'Little Bird' was written after an actual real live little bird woke me up at 5 in the morning, doing it's birdie thing. I went out for a walk and read a sign in the park that said a song sparrow might sing his song several thousand times in one day. I figured I better get home and get to work. Thank you for listening. - Amy Musicians include: Mason Tuttle - guitar, mandolin, bass, vocals, Michael Blessing - drums Elie Nuno - fiddle Jen Slayden - cello and i think i'm forgetting someone. Sorry.
