I actually had a different song written for the letter "K", but Kiki dropped on me from out of the blue. The idea came to me while driving home one day, and 10 minutes later it was written and I was in my home studio recording it. I feel less like I wrote this one and more like it was given to me.

...The album is nicely produced ...gently uptempo folk-inflected rock. To put the album in adult terms, I'd describe it as Barenaked Ladies meets Phish. Read More...Stephan Shepherd (Zooglobble)
