Highlight Lyric: “That river was running just searching for an ocean/ The freedom we’d never known/ That feeling you get when the wind is blowing/ Like you’re whole life is starting over/ We made our peace there with the no man’s land where we come from/ I’ve been searching for the waves to carry us home” from Red River

Highlight Review: “it might be easy to lump in with the downtrodden likes of Connor Oberst and Elliott Smith. But his songwriting is a bit more triumphant than theirs: Votolato would rather pull himself out of a gutter than wallow in it, focusing instead on the victory before the misery.” – read more at NPR Music
