This dreamy tune drew me in after the first 10 seconds.  I was happy to find out this talent is from our own great state however I did cringe a bit when I realized he was born the year I graduated high school. (am I really that old?!)   Take a listen…   A review reads, ” Opening track ‘10,000 Emerald Pools’ takes it slow, easing the listener into a state of vague delight with .
