You Belong Among the Wildflowers

Remembering Tom Petty
Remembering Tom Petty

Tom Petty has inspired Nick Stephens and Mark Whittaker in how they write music and how they tell stories through song.

One of our dreams would have been to be able to share our music with Tom.

We are very saddened by the loss of our musical hero.

Tom, you belong among the wildflowers.

-Nick Whit
