Tom Brosseau on "Roll Along With Me"
"A simple riff that came about while watching a baseball documentary,” he says of the song. “Old habit, really. Practicing acoustic guitar in front of the television set. I like to visit San Diego. My good friend Gregory Page lives there, and when I do go for a visit I take the train, which parallels the Pacific Ocean. Speed, bodies in the sun, bodies in the moonlight, California towns along the way, beach, the vast sea. Not all the time but some this is how I escape from the world and when I escape that’s when things happen. Many things in life can be solved. It all starts with observing.”
