FIRSTLY, I'D LIKE TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANKS TO YOU, FOR PURCHASING THIS ALBUM. THERE'S AN INFINITE SEA OF ARTISTS OUT THERE, AND AN ABUNDANCE OF MUSIC TO FILTER THRU IN OUR DAY IN TIME. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE LOST ART OF "REAL" MUSIC. I'D SECONDLY LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THE BRILLIANT MUSICIANS, AND ENGINEERS I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH FROM DAY 1 OF PRODUCTION. YOUR GIFTS AND TALENT ENABLED ME TO PAINT THIS PICTURE MUCH MORE CLEARLY... AND TO MY PREDECESSORS, WHO'S MUSIC INSPIRED ME TO CREATE THIS BODY OF WORK. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR LEAVING THIS EARTH WITH YOUR INSPIRING VOICES OF TRUTH AND EXPRESSION. I'D LIKE TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANKS TO MY FAMILY, AND FRIENDS WHO'VE SUPPORTED ME IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. OUR LOSS OF TIME SPENT DUE TO THE PRODUCTION OF THIS RECORD WILL BE RESTORED WITH MANY NEW MEMORIES TO COME. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND LOVE. CHEERS TO LOVE THAT SURPASSES BOUNDARIES, AND TO THE WOMAN WHO INSPIRED ME TO WRITE THE BULK OF THIS RECORD. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I LOVE AND ADORE YOU.! AND LASTLY, A THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL FANS AND SUPPORTERS. A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO JANEARE ASHLEY, MANUEL DEMOUSSY, SILA MUTUNGI, BRANDON HARRIS, GUTHRIE DOLIN, AND TO ALL OF THE REST OF OUR KICKSTARTER SUPPORTERS WHO HELPED US JUMP START THIS ALBUM. A TOAST... TO LOVE, LIFE, MUSIC, PASSION, AND TO MANY MORE RELEVANT CONVERSATIONS. THANK YOU.
