The majority of the tracks compiled here were recorded after a devastating loss which resulted in a life shattering, and consequently life affirming, period. I was staring into the void. Everything was questioned, torn down and built anew. I found comfort, for the first time in years, in the creative process and was fortunate enough to express and purge that which nearly consumed me. Hearts and minds kept me here. I lost everything yet gained the world.
Love and gratitude to Dina, Jennie and Katie McPhee (my wonders), Tim Phaneuf, Cameron and the extended Doig family, Jaime and the extended Phaneuf family, the APDAP and CHRW crews, Jani Urogi and Soun Records, Barry Forbes at Up Digital, Martin Boultan at Touched, Timothy Glasgow, Zachary Gray, The Riderless family, A Priori, Wilson Byrick, Lucas Stenning, Thomas Cermak, Jake O'Haara, Susan Edelstein and the ArtLab, Mark Kyriacou, Paul and Christine Walde, Jeff Pastorius, Pamela Haasen and London Fuse, Janey Martin, Bonnie Goodden, all of the homies who kept and eye on me and got me through, and to the one that got away (goodnight, beauty...). With love and adoration.
