Singer/songwriter Sean Hayes is constantly looking for inspiration for his music. He found it in the story of a man named Moreese Bickham who served more than 40 years in Angola prison. Little did he know that by writing the song, he was about to change Moreese's story...All the music in this piece was by Sean Hayes. Thank you to David Isay, StoryCorps founder and the producer of Tossing Away the Keys. It is a magnificent piece of radio. And last but not least, many thanks to the inimitable Moreese Bickham, who now lives in Oakland, California.
