"I am a student of harmony. Growing up as a musician and working on farms as a child I began to see the connection between the two. My life now, is a living example of how there is room for creative thinking in agriculture and plenty of room for the humility of farming in music. Nature is the greatest technology we have and an endless supply of inspiration for any artist."
