I watched Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin kill George Floyd on the streets of my hometown, Minneapolis. This town created the soundtrack of my youth with music by Prince and Soul Asylum. This town where I learned to play a guitar after watching Dr. Mambo's Combo at Bunkers every Sunday night, and Hoopsnakes at the Five Corner Saloon every Wednesday night. This town was now the home of a murderous act of hate and racism. This town was now the epicenter of social unrest. Being a singer song writer, I responded the only way I could--through my music. This Town, my album, is a reflection of this moment of time.
