I don't think I've ever had such a creative high working on a record. I was inspired from the first trip to the Woody Guthrie Archives. Something magical happened and the melodies and the combinations of lyrics and prose just came together. I loved researching and hanging out with Nora, hearing stories about her dad. I definitely found a very different Guthrie than I expected. There is just so much nuance and beauty. And the musicians took the music beyond anything I could have dreamed. I know this record will speak to everyone.
