A simple acoustic guitar and vocal open Barak Hill's first full length solo album. As songs progress, other instruments drift into the mix, but Barak's focus stays simple—it's always about the lyrics. Whether he's singing about jilted lovers, a Civil War soldier writing home, Oz's Tin Man, a would-be Arsonist, or a Lion Tamer well past his prime, Barak's keen ear for recognizing a good story, and talent for telling it is at the heart of this album. Strong songwriting and clean production earn this indie/folk album a spot in your collection next to Josh Ritter, The Avett Brothers, and Ryan Adams.
