Our Gadsby Hymnal obsession lives on, and for this record, we worked with 9 more songs from “Gadsby’s Hymns”. We also branched out a little and spent some time working with William William's texts, which are not found in the Gadsby. We felt like two of his songs fit the collection for this record, and we decided to include them.
It is important to note that every song on this record was written or co-written by our friend, and fabulous Texan, Benj Pocta. We met Benj the same way everyone meets these days - on the internet, and before long we were sending demos back and forth. Benj traveled to Birmingham several times to write, write some more, and ultimately record this record with us. It’s been a work in progress and it's been our longest process yet; over a year and a half in the making as we've revised, recorded, and re-recorded. Hopefully you'll agree that these songs have been worth the wait.
Thanks Benj. We are thankful to have met you, and it has been a pleasure working on these songs together. It's not often we find friends like you, and we look forward to many more songs together.
