Special Thanks To...

Goran Rista for an awesome job mixing the album and for having the patience of a saint!

Ric Fierabracci, Chris Howes, Joel Rosenblatt and the rest of the musicians who played on the album for bringing life to this music in a way that far exceeded my expectations.

Bob Katz for being the absolute best mastering engineer on the planet and a true supporter of independent artists!!

"Professor" Jerry Power at Powers Audio for giving me a hand up into the realm of digital recording and for his continuing support throughout the recording and mixing of the album.


To all those who purchase this CD either in physical or digital form, THANK YOU! Showing your support by actually purchasing the music is genuinely appreciated and is in large part what will facilitate my ability to release future projects of this same caliber.
