Life in the Desert
Raised in North Carolina amongst strict Baptists, the tempest discovered his love of bourbon in an empty bottle behind the barn when he was a tender five years old.
He was musically gifted, and years later in sunny Santa Fe, the ever-active creator built this bourbophone in the bathroom with those familiar empty bottles. It played interesting notes when struck with a mallet. Of course, days could get hot in the desert too, so cool sounds were appreciated by all.
