Walk Away 02:38


"Waits." contains six of my favorite songs from the incomparable Tom Waits. I've been intrigued, excited and buoyed by his music for the last several years and felt that this was what I was supposed to do for my next project. I didn't want to reimagine or recreate anything too heavily, so we kept the songs at a level that are clearly giving a nod to Tom but not attempting to match his music entirely. I hope you enjoy what you hear.
