On July 15th I arrived in Thessalon, ON which was the 13th day of my first North American tour. I had spent the previous night drinking and the entirety of the day (from 7:00 AM to about 5:00 PM) on a Greyhound bus (my exclusive mode of transportation for the entire 45 day trip).
I got off the bus, was met by the wonderful Tom Carnahan (my couchsurfing host for the evening) and after a quick meal, cup of coffee, and some delicious dark chocolate, I sat down and recorded this album.
Completely live, acoustic, nothin' fancy.
Bonus Item: video of Tom's kittens! They just barely had their eyes open...
