The track shares the same name with the area Joe was born and raised in. Decimated by fire in early 2011, his poignant return to that place, become the catalyst that spawned Joe’s amazing new musical journey.Joe’s masterful use of the fragile silences in his music, keeping the instrumentation sparse and letting each considered sound resonate evokes a vulnerable yet powerful sound.
