In The Cooler, Music

Bruce Guynn and Big Rain-The Redwood Coast Sound.

We like to call it the “Redwood Coast Sound”. I think I was inspired by the Redwoods of Northern and Central Coast California and didn’t really know it. Feel free to get some song downloads at

This song is called: Moment of Honesty

and this is: “I’m Not Running”
