"The richness of his lyrical protest rises above."
Impose Magazine



A revelation! The steady pendulum of a land oil rig. He is tapped inspiration. He swings between, misery  pride exploring the complexities inherent in the immorality of capitalism and the individual purpose found in one’s work. With uncanny awareness, he knows the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide. He speaks of the greater implications of our reliance on fossil fuels, corrupt political leaders, and fear. Even as he tackles such heaviness, the songs are boisterous and driving. The perfect rallying cry for humanity from the heart of a working man.
