Once there was a little girl who played with her dolly all day
Her momma called to come inside but she continued to play
Then that night she fell into a deep dark secret well
And when she hit, she found herself in the midst of a fiery hell
All because she disobeyed, we can see what she got
When you don't mind your parents, kids, you will suffer a lot
Once there was a little boy who liked to scarf down sweets
His momma said, "That's for dessert!" but he continued to eat
That very night the heavens sent a raging thunderstorm
His pretty face was split in half and grotesquely deformed
His stubbornness, it was the cause
He lost all that he had gained
When you don't do what others want you to, you will die in pain
Manners, you and I both need them, it isn't hard to be polite
But if you choose to follow evil, you will surely fry

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
