Prolific songwriter steeped proudly in country roots, Mastwyk has travelled the long highways of America’s south penning tales and poems as playful and amusing as they are dark and heartbreaking

There’s an assumed secrecy with telephone communication so people tend to pour their deepest secrets into them. But there are countless stories of people’s wrongdoings being uncovered"
