Roots and Crowns. "Uniting where you come from - your roots - with what you strive to be or what you reinvent yourself to become - crowns," explains Califone's Tim Rutili. "At the bottom of these songs are the memories and images you sift through in the process." Imagery of rebirth comes up often on this CD. Limitations, obstructions, darkness, and the new possibilities they illuminate is what ROOTS AND CROWNS is all about.
