Black Was The Tide - Jack Yoder

from the single Black Was The Tide (2010)

Jack Yoder is an undiscovered American Treasure.  A gifted songwriter and musician, his songs speak to our inner demons in a way that leaves me breathless and raw.  Black Was The Tide was written and recorded during his years playing in New Orleans.  This song goes beyond the BP Oil Spill, lending a voice to the neglected and the discarded.  "There's a hole in the bottom of the ocean, where dreams go when they die" is just one of its haunting lines.  Last I heard, Jack was ramblin' across Colorado with his blues band.  Search him.  Seek out his music.  Experience his performances.  You will be better for it.
