Hello my friend. I wish I could be there to see these songs find you, wherever you are, as you listen to this CD. I don't want to just write a postcard from the place these songs can take you. I'd rather we were on a road trip with this CD playing. I could see your reaction as the songs come back around and carry us through the miles.
I love the perspective these songs can offer. I sing them to go back there. I want to learn what they know.
I recorded this in my home studio so I was able to capture each song at its best moment and find the players who would add just what each song needed. When it was mix time, I went to NYC to work with Ben Wisch. He made these songs shine. Some songs that I thought were on the "maybe" list (like "Into One") blossomed into being my favorites after Ben added his ideas and mix magic.
I am so grateful to players like Ted Ray, an awesome drummer from DC, who came to my little home studio on a winter's day to set down the foundation that made these songs so fun to listen to. And Craig Young on bass. And thanks to Nance; she sang beautiful harmonies, along with Jared Tyler who also added all kinds of cool slide parts. Thanks also to Stephanie Winters on cello and Garret Buell on percussion.
And thanks to my manager, Tom Simonson, my agent, Mike Leahy, and all the fine folks at Concerted Efforts, Rob Gordon and everyone at What Are Records? and lastly Karyn Soroka of Soroka Music Ltd. - all of whom help me get this music out to you.
Most of all, thanks to YOU for listening.
