Life on the Road with Joseph Faison IV | Homeless Romantic | #195 HR

My friend Joseph Faison IV is a musician and songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. He talks about his experiences living overseas, including time in Berlin, Greece, and a small village in Greece. During his time in Turkey, he faced difficulties obtaining the necessary documentation, leading to his departure for 90 days. He reflects on how he felt like bad luck was chasing him around, despite his desire to live a more carefree lifestyle. Faison also talks about his experiences playing guitar with a group of musicians he met while living in a diesel/biodiesel bus, including two brothers he grew up with in Nashville.
