I was raised up on the rivers of eastern North Carolina where I was born.  I first lost my heart in the muddy waters of the Perquimans River, specifically, which rose to kiss the aching, bent cypress trees; and if I ever had the chance to recapture it, the swooping swallows stole it away for good.  I spent a good six years away from those Carolina shores, hitch-hiking up to Chicago where I learned to sing the blues.  But as soon as I hit the road back to the open roads and blue skies of Carolina, this song came into being...

It's always a pleasure to hear Matty Sheets and Angelina Rodriguez on WUAG 103.1 FM's Thursday night show, Gate City Port Authority, and even more fun to join them.  They've been gracious enough to have me on the show a few times, and last time I was there, the master cameraman Cameron Hetteen shot this video of my song "Carolina Blues".  Unfortunately there is no magic edit button to make larger-than-average nostrils look normal, but what can you do?  Hop in and let's drive!
