David Sampson phones it in from Chicago, IL, to spread the story of a lonesome soul forced to leave home, translated into striking musical form.

"The point of Cains&Abels is to tell one specific story. The story is called 'The Reluctant Trucker' for now. 'The Reluctant Trucker' is a mixture of autobiographical details and the kind of day-dream you have when you have a crush on someone and you want them to notice you so you think of some horrible thing that would make them feel sorry for you, like your parents dying."

And yet David's songs are powerfully uplifting.
