Debut album from adamant South Australian Liam Gerner. After touring around the US and playing music with all kinds of people and bands, this album was formulated, with songs often based on true stories he had heard on the road, like the methamphetamine running seniors in their Winnebago (#2) or the slave who mailed himself to freedom (#8). Liam is in his element as a singer/songwriter when telling a story with his gentle and expressive voice, like in 2,3,6. #10 is fun for the late night hours
