She’s environmentally friendly, and sounds fine. To be one with the positive vibrations of our naturally creative existence inspires and motivates us. We recently
teamed up with poet Monte Flinchum to create two songs you can listen to here, “Dark Purple Summer Night” and “Raining in My Soul”. Lee Pinkerson is our singer, songwriter and guitarist. Bill Snyder provides the bow and beat on his acoustic bass fiddle. He also rounds out the sound with some harmony vocals. http://www.reverbnation.com/harribuffalo
