I first ran into Chris Buhalis at a demonstration in Lansing where he and Joshua Davis stood on a makeshift stage amidst a throng of hard-working, blue collar workers singing protest songs to keep their spirits high. The first song I ever heard him sing was, coincidentally, the song he chose to use as an encore on this night: This Land Is Your Land. Perhaps Woody Guthrie was looking down on this night, and I imagine he was smiling as the crowd sang along with Buhalis, drowning him out on the chorus, and ending with "this land was made for you and me!". Like Woody's song, I think Chris also made this album for all of us. To inspire us. To move us. To make us think. And to bring us Joy. Well done Chris. Well done.
