Lost Highway draws upon influences from country, blues and jazz. Three of the tracks are from the boogie woogie tradition. "Psycho" is a country song that portrays a man who's lost his mind. "Lost Highway" is a country song about a life gone wrong.

"Murder Ballad" is excerpted from the work of blues and jazz pioneer Jelly Roll Morton (1885-1941). His take of this song is 28 minutes long, filled with raw language, and was released only after his death. My version softens the language and reduces the duration to under seven minutes.

"Your Feet's Too Big" is a Fats Waller song. "Skylark" was composed and authored by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer in 1941. "Boogie Woogie Country Girl" was created by Big Joe Turner, an American blues shouter from Kansas City, Missouri.

"Fade to Gray" is my song about the little people, the forgotten people, the gray people of the world.
