"Ballads, Stripmall" is a deeply charismatic album. It locates itself resolutely in the injured drama of Northeast DC and invites us into that world.

They are reminders to the artist and to the listener that our lives intersects with the lives of others and that art resides at this intersection… sometimes homeless and panhandling… sometimes selling newspapers and cold water… and sometimes just shooting the breeze with passers-by. This is folk music." Brad Park, producer
