In January of 2015, we started this little Skateboard Company in our Garage. Born out of Love, Strength and Inspiration, Street Plant has been sown and cultivated with a Woman’s Touch, and it has made all the difference.
In my 31 years in Skateboarding, it was a rare occurrence where I shared a conference room or discussed the marketing or the business of Skateboarding with a Woman. I had to step outside of the industry, past the errors of tradition and shake the chains of commerce in order to find my way Home, into the Loving Arms of my Wife and Daughters, where I could finally Think, Feel and Attend Justly to my interests. It was here, that I once again found the Romance in My Nature, the Dignity to Go Forward and the Encouragement to Keep Dreaming. I truly have my Wife Ann and our Daughters Emily and Lucy to Thank for that.

The Songs I wrote with Saints Of Low and Good For You represent the road to Street Plant. I had been lost in my own darkness for many years. The writing of these Songs was an exercise in self-assessment. Whatever rueful reflections they engendered, they also Illuminated the first steps in what would prove to be a long ride home. The Songs on this playlist represent that journey. These Songs were Good For Me, maybe they could be Good For You.
