While working as a Smokejumper and parachuting into rugged terrain to fight fires, I began to see a parallel between tapping into creativity and passing through a "black door" to complete a challenging mission.
Once on the ground, we often found that success was acheived by the most simple means. We had a saying that "we fly to the fire in million dollar aircraft, jump out of the plane using thousand dollar parachutes, and then beat the fire out with a pine bough."
As with my music, I have used the latest technology to get it recorded and delivered to you, but I keep the sound "back to basics."
I call the music style "mudsill" in an effort to re-invent folk sound while hinging on the emotion and sometimes deep messages of sixties style folk music. Although much of my music addresses everyday life with sometimes cynical lyrics, it is easy to listen to.
A "mudsill" is the lowest foundation stone of a building which holds up the rest of the structure. I feel that the term mudsill describes my mix of acoustic guitar, harmonica, and lyrics. Although several musicians offered extra session instrumentation for this album, I decided to keep that "back to basics" sound on this CD.
I would like to thank my friend Buddy Capps, former lead singer for Asylum Suite, for his expertise in the recording and mixing of "Softly in Time" at his studio here in East Tennessee.
