about

These songs originated on nylon guitar. Then Ayo and I organically added tracks on top which took them to unexpected and delightfully surprising new territory. Lastly, I added some ambient textures while still retaining the original emotional intention. - Don

Track Name: The Roots of a Tree (feat. Ayo Adeyemi)
The Yoruba language of Nigeria.
Track Name: Big Empty Moon
we’re all in a play
called, “The Passionate Days”
where we’re all tryin’ find
some peace of mind

and we wanna be free
but we want it for free
you know it’s gettin’ harder to find
that peace of mind

red velvet will fall
the last curtain call
it’s somethin’ to see
for you and me

so fill up your glass
an’ have a big laugh
we’ll shout at the moon
the big empty moon

yeah we’ll fill up the glasses
while it all elapses
we’ll throw stones at the moon
the big empty moon

big empty moon
big empty moon
big empty moon
Track Name: Um Mundo (feat. Ayo Adeyemi)
The Yoruba language of Nigeria.
Track Name: My Favorite MInd
I really gotta take a little time aside
and ask myself, questions that are on my mind
ask myself questions, see what I might find

‘cause we’re never gonna make with this planet, man
if we’re always in a hurry makin’ other plans
besides the one, that’s facin’ us to, understand

still in the dark of night
when everything seems to be alright, alright, alright

a flame is found
and there it lies deep inside
see it dancin’ in the shadows, see it come alive

without a sound
it flares up, yeah it never dies
it’s been dancin’ in the shadows, in my favorite mind
it’s in my favorite mind
it’s in my favorite mind
in my favorite mind
