  • Gaviota
    March 24, 2016
    The Gaviota, or seagull, is the de facto national bird of Cuba, as Cubans often identify with the birds' resilience and oddity.. The gaviotas are scrappers, always somehow surviving elements, famine, poverty, yet, oddly, always sticking around for more...never leaving Cuba's shores even though they could just fly away at any time. The last line of this song's chorus...'Si en los montes, montes eres,' draws directly from José Martí. I took his lines and gave em back to Cuba, and to the woman I’m falling in love with, in the form of a wish, or desire for her and her flight..the woman's, Cuba's...away from ‘hunger,’ strife, and mere survival...and toward life, love.

One simple, declarative sentence from a 7 year old boy. I laughed when he said it, saying “thanks, dude. what every dad likes to hear.” It was funny, but, l don’t think he meant it to be. He was just saying what he felt (literally). One simple sentence and I decided right then that I needed to change. Everything. Read More

    Where you been, Cuban Cowboy?
    November 12, 2013
    I’ve been nowhere and Everywhere. “Nowhere” speaks to the fact that TCC’s only played two shows this year. It also refers to our relative radio silence over the past two years. No new albums, no email blasts, no press, etc. Joo get the picture. We released our last album in 2010, toured a bit, got featured on NPR, then poof. Nowhere.

    “Everywhere” speaks as much to where I’ve been (Spain, Morocco, Cuba, Mexico) as it does to the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual ‘places’ experience has brought me to since last we spoke. “Everywhere” refers to the fact that life happens. For an artist, life not only impacts art-making by influencing the emergence, kinds and intensity of inspiration that make the art possible to begin with. Read More
