by Ish & Friends

This wild and wacky Bluegrass song is about never giving up on yourself and / or others and, showcases different character voices as the song creatively brings that mindset to focus. It's funny, interactive and conveys the thought; that all you are is what you do and ever choose to be.

Although best known as a Children’s and Family Concert, Recording Artist, Ish enjoys writing and sharing his Songs and Stories from a Grown-up point of view too.


by Ish & Friends

This is a fun filled up-tempo romantic Bluegrass tune, and, sung in a duet. And, is a kick back to the Country, Rockabilly style of Buck Owens.

It’s about love and fascination with a truly imaginative and catchy chorus that says it all.

“Our love is bigger than the Beatles; last longer than the Rolling Stones and sweeter than Peter, Paul & Mary. Our loving hearts have found a loving home; our loving hearts have found a loving home.”

This song relates to Ish discovering that his home had been burglarized and that his favorite guitar was stolen.  And how he has risen above, found a way to release the anger, pay homage to his old guitar and have some fun.
