"This is a true homage from apprentice to master for me! The idea was to reinterpret this song as if Sean Reinert had recorded it, though I've always been very vocal about my adoration of Bill Andrew's more simple but solid style, so obviously NO disrespect there!

Doing my best Bill Reinert impersonation!"
