The CD reveals an appreciative homage to twin fiddlers and the island sounds of Hawaiian steel guitars.

The CD explores both the light and dark side of snow-birding in Southern Florida through the cool lens of a Canadian drifter. Ryan mixes classic country music with modern satire and forges a sound between contemporary folk and dyed-in-the wool country.

Atlantic Seabreeze gives the CD a four star rating out of 5 stars.
