Hope Springs Eternal

Mark Olson finds salvation in being one of the vocal and lyrical laureates of American music.

There's a line in your song "Sandy Denny" [about the late British singer]: "The things we dislike in others we find in ourselves."

Yeah, that was my aunt and I talking. She works with nuns and they go through this thing sometimes in their forties, and because of their lifestyles, they have to face something. There's a dark and light side to people. I sometimes have a reaction to people, where I really don't like them. But the reality is they're exhibiting things that I'm like.

On this album you seem to be looking for some forgiveness. How do you know when you've been forgiven?

Mark Olson: The ex-Jayhawk has to "work hard every day, just keep working and make my way back."

I don't know. I don't know. For me, it's simple common sense. I have to work hard every day, just keep working and make my way back.
