Thanks every one for all the comments of awesomeness. I m writng a lil third person ish with also a first person perspective.Theres a lot of people in my head that want to be heared ,ya know. I've really been influenced by John Moreland's writing lately. So ,I'm keepin it more real.Well,I've listened to Dylan all my life and my girlie has a load of Dylan albums we listen to.I always think the artists we listen to influence our songwriting and style whether overtly or subconsciously. Plus Dylan always inspired in the fact that figured hey if that guy can be famous with that voice,then I can be infamous with mine.

I can’t place the songwriter, sounds familiar though. Googled it, got you, your famous! Danny’s right, you sound more like Dylan than Dylan. Excellent video Vinnie!

Sounds a lot like a Mark Alainz song.  A nice listen and a large dose of real.  Looking for redemption in this barren land. 

Vinnie, I know just what you mean.  I do it too.  I did it yesterday.

I tend to like you and that banjo combination a lot.
