“Evergreen” offers a gently unfolding meditation on the passage of time that looks both backwards and forwards. It conveys a sense of hope and optimism, even in the midst of change. It’s about learning to let go of things that don’t matter.
Kinetic Tone is a collection of stories, portraits and meditations that encompass adventure (“Marshall McClain”), lost love (“Snake Charmer”), aging and growth (“What The Years Do”), faith (“God Knows”), the urge to roam (“Two Lane Highway,” which features Bibey as a new lead voice), and changes to the ways of life that long held sway around their homes in Haywood County (“Running Out of Reasons”).
