lin·e·age       /ˈlinēij/

lineal descent from an ancestor

Lisa said to me one day: “you’re always telling stories about your family, you should write songs about them.”  Such an innocent statement but it was all I needed to begin composing.  The song titles are family members born in the early 20th Century.  I spent my childhood with each of them and they all made an impression on me. I hope all of these songs speak to you and reconnect you with your Lineage.
