In early 2009, by chance, Cioffi and Hummer met and started talking about poetry and music. As a hard-working guitarist and music director, Billy had never shun his interest in Literature; while Hummer the productive writer, had never stopped being a musician. That conversation is furthered within its resonant echo of AmeriCamera.
"Poetry on an Americana sound blanket (...)
the delivery of AmeriCamera make them part of one family."
Alternate Root Magazine - Nov 2011
For Hummer, the question was: when did text-based poetry and musical performance, which had in the beginning been the same thing, parted ways, and could they once again join forces? For Cioffi, the question was: why isn't Poetry to Music what novels are to film?
