How No Fixed Address got it's name!

Hey Guys! Hope you're enjoying the new music and the stories behind them. Here is a little Gypsy-esk song that I wrote right about at the same time that we decided to sell everything we own and travel North America for a year! We started our journey in July 2014 and as of writing this are in Tennessee, making our way to the east coast and then North back to Canada. What an amazing journey it has been so far. Really I have always wanted to be Gypsy so this is a fun little story song about a young gypsy woman breaking hearts and bank accounts all over town(s). I didn't have a professional recording to share with you so I did this little live recording in our motorhome while we were somewhere in the Smoky Mountains - kind of fitting don't you think? Lyrics are below! Enjoy 🙂
