Since the release of "Keepin’ The Vibe Alive" I have had a major number birthday. Because it was a significant birthday my friends and family chipped in to buy me a guitar that I had seen and wanted since my AC days. The timing was perfect. I needed something to spark a new round of creativity and the National Style “O” did the trick. I also traveled to the jungle to experience an ancient Ayahuasca ceremony. The day after I returned I picked up the National (which I named Elizabeth Ann, after my mom) and out popped the song “De la Vina”. The title translates to “of the vine” which is what Ayahuasca is made from. It is the story of my experience and all the players involved. From that starting point more songs poured fourth.
