Graham Sparkman: "Hazard Was Here" (2016). New Album.

A note on the album title:

 

"When I was a young boy I spent a considerable amount of time exploring the hills around my hometown of Hazard, Kentucky. On one such outing, remember carving my name into the trunk of a tree. It must have read something like “Graham was here 10-4-87”. I was basically trying to leave my mark on the place. While brainstorming for an album title, I recalled this event. I realized that the place left more of a mark on me. I had a visual image of a tree carving its name onto the chest of a boy. Thus the album title “Hazard Was Here”. Artist Jessica Miller brought this image to life for the album cover."
