This album is my first release album, and the title track Son of a hero, is a song I wrote for my father who fought in the Korean conflict and who's values and beliefs have carried me throughout my life. The music is easy-listening and bluesy. Some of the songs are recovery orientated, and the song " Streets of Broken Dreams" was featured in a video on the Province Newspaper's webpage about the downtown east side of Vancouver and the drug problem there.

Track Name: son of a hero
" I was born the son of a hero, or in my eyes that's the way it should be, though you fought in the war, I didn't know what for, but I believe you were fighting for me, You said freedom is worthy of dying, and integrity is the truth of a man, with all that you do, I still look up to you, and try to be the best that I can."
Track Name: the blues had a baby
" The Blues had a baby, and it's called rock and roll"....
Track Name: streets of broken dreams
" There's a glow in the air on the streets tonight on the corner of Hastings and Main, There's a cry of voices in the pale moonlight, from the wolves who deal out the pain, and another addict dies, by the old Sunrise, but no one seems to notice so it seems, because who really cares, what goes on down there, on the streets of broken dreams"

Track Name: the dance
"How I miss those crazy times when we didn't stand a chance, fighting like cats and dogs not giving up our stance, but making up was fun to do cuz we called it romance, the music may be over, but I still long for the dance."
Track Name: lead me home
" I can hear your heart calling, like a whisper in the breeze, speak to me words of promise, set my weary mind at ease...
Track Name: sugarloaf mountain
" It's been years since I left the country, it's been years since I left my home, spent my time lost in the city, and I lived my life like a rolling stone...
Track Name: who I am
" I have been down to the crossroads and seen the world from both sides, and I have been down to the circus and I have been on all the rides....
