What a joy it is to make music with this band, thank you Mike, Tom, Dalton, Nick, Rob, Sean and Jay. I appreciate your musicianship and friendship onstage and off more than I can express. Sean, now I understand why great songwriters work in teams. Joe, thank you for jumping on board from that first phone call. Mom and Dad, how fortunate I am for your love, support, feedback, art and music! This album is dedicated to the Caldwell family who have indeed heard more bad news than anyone should have to bear, but continue to inspire and lift up those around them. Thank you for listening!
