The Green Kingdom ~ The North Wind and the Sun

The North Wind and the Sun is a record of deep clarity and calm, looking out at the world with a pair of bright green eyes. By largely abandoning his electric guitar and taking up more traditional acoustic instrumentation, The Green Kingdom (Michael Cottone) reinvigorates and enriches his music,
