A Feather's Not A Bird
Come along with me on an experimental Pinterest voyage! We are dedicating separate boards for select songs from my new record "The River & The Thread". "A Feather's Not A Bird" lays out the landscape of the album: A travelogue of the South, the Soul, the crazy and wonderful Characters, the Past and the Future. The thread connects me to all the places I mention, and all the Southern people I love. I want to hear from you! Feel free to share. xxxxoooo
