A member of the lower Brule Lakota nation, who was adopted as an infant and raised in a non-Native family, Brule uses music as a way to bring together the two cultures of his past. Although born on the Lower Brule Sioux reservation in South Dakota, it wasn't until the death of both of his adoptive parents in 1987 that he became aware of his ancestry. He was reunited with his Lakota parents in 1996. It was at this time that he discovered that his great grandmother, Mary Little Elk passed along her natural musical abilities to her great grandson. The cover art on the CD is a painting of her piano that sat out in a field where she would play by ear for members of the community.
