I was first introduced to the Horrells by Jeff Reid when we engaged Steve and Cindy to play and sing on my 2004 CD, “Right Hand Man.” I was so impressed by their ability and dedication to the project that I found myself repeatedly stopping by their house to talk shop and explore the possibility of recording a couple of demos to send to Nashville. In the following year I became a Tuesday night fixture in the Horrell’s warm and loving home. We took it one song at a time eventually focusing on a general theme for a new rock and roll CD. Steve put endless hours into the production of this project as he evolved into an accomplished recording engineer. In my opinion, Steve is one of the finest guitar players I have ever worked with; his mastery of his instrument is truly inspirational. I am also grateful for the contributions of Tony, Scott, Jim, Jason, Cindy, Anna, Rick and Nel. We are privileged to draw from such a deep well of talent in the Wilmington area. This entire CD has been tempered by the love and generosity afforded me by dear Cindy. My music became a daily presence in her life as Steve added layer upon layer to my solo performances and distilled each tune into a final product. This is
their record as much as it is mine. We hope you love it.
