Tim Grimm should be considered an Indiana treasure. This one blew me away when I first listened back in the Fall and still haunts me 4 months later. I nominate "China" as song of the year. Steve Clarke- host, Acoustic Planet-CHES- Canada

Just back from a great monthlong tour. I wanted to pass along
links to 2 films that are currently being shown, and in which
you'll see me. If you look closely-- you'll find me in both online
trailers. I also supplied music for "Slice of Pie"-- my song,
"Long Way Around" recurs as the theme song.
