"The myths of our country are in the songs. The untold stories and gaps in history books are in the songs – our recollection is preserved in this music. Those songs as well as the stories that my parents told me, the bible and the books I read, all this is the foundation of my imagination of America. But I do not see myself as a keeper of tradition. I rather am a craftsman who on a daily basis does what he does best: singing and playing guitar. That’s the only thing I‘ve learned. I am following the music. So when I sing about my own experiences they are always influenced by America. And America is a vast country. And America is always the beginning of an idea.“ (DEE)
