My dad grew up in Diamondville, a small coal mining town in Pennsylvania. He taught me to love old country music like Patsy Cline, so when I started writing I levitated toward that old familiar style.
Camelia Road started as a tribute to that genre, but it has evolved over the last couple of years mostly thanks to the SWAN Day events. Now, we just go wherever the music takes us.
