I wrote this coming back from a Mildura Festival & was inspired by all the independent artists who had their own stories to tell in song. Up until that point, I had always thought of myself as an interpreter of songs, the songwriting gene having passed me by. My mother Carmella died in 2000 and I wanted to honor her memory and also tell her emigration story from Italy to Australia in the 50’s. Her grandchildren Dan & Jess sang harmonies on it.
