POTUS is a whimsical collection of historically-oriented songs about overlooked or awful U.S. Presidents. Most lyrics are first-person fictional narratives of lesser known or monstrous occupants of the country's highest office. The music ranges from folk to rock to disco depending on the mood of the lyric and period. The album mixes history with storytelling, providing a humanized view of men who have guided America for better or worse (more often worse). Eleven presidents from Adams through Ford are highlighted in this collection, none of whom served a full eight years.
