The songs are rich in sensory detail which allows the listener to hear, see and feel each narrative. With four albums to his credit, Bedford’s songs tackle scenarios including homelessness, the plight of a Confederate soldier’s wife during the American Civil War, the aerial triumphs of Amelia Earhart, the murder of Emmett Till in 1955, and many more.
