The oaks across my reservation were a deep inspiration for this record. The oak branches you see suspended on the album cover are ones that fell on my tribes land 20 some years ago. Oaks I used to lean against, read, and day dream by. They’ve traveled with me from the Rez to LA and at the moment they are in the dark forests of Massachusetts. They mean that a bit of Home and Earth walk with me. The character that comes through on this record is very much like a Dancing, Walking Oak tree. Her steps are slow and heavy, long and wide. She peers through Oak Tree Eyes.
