I would like to thank all my talented friends for helping to make this record possible. Cory for breaking it down, Jason for bringing it back, Peter and his snow globe full of arcane records, Gerard's request, Ted & Penny's garden, Jake's spare guitar, J Fine for hearing me out and dragging me home, Michelle for rendering the monkey, Lisa for the eye of the needle, Pat for the ears, David for Saturday morning mixes with Alisa on his lap and Anna tapping along, Inara for her harmony and Lowell's guitar, Andrea R for digging weeds, Andrea K for nurturing new ideas, Flannagan for the open door, bottomless Guinness and convincing me I should record my next record live at his club.
This record is for Audrey and Isabel.
