The Landlocked Sailor
Some of my favorite memories are of sitting around a campfire on a beach in Kansas while my dad played the guitar and sang. The moonlight, the stars, and the fire all danced together on the water, while the rest of us danced on the sand.
There was some country, a little classic rock, and a whole lot of Jimmy Buffett. Years later, when I picked up my own guitar, I could feel all those influences come through me in the music I played and the stories I told.
Whether it’s a song about drinking, love, or the lack thereof, I want to take listeners to their own place where worries fade. I may not be able to make problems disappear, but as the landlocked sailor I do know how to find a beach, even in the middle of Kansas.
