Unlimited thanks to Colin Stange for being my partner in creating this music as you hear it today. Without him this record wouldn't exist at all, nor would it be in any particular tempo.
Thanks to Peter, Jennifer, Foon, Clea and Jonathon for your beautiful contributions to the album, I'm glad to have you all in there with me.
Deep gratitude to Pat Palardy for making the tail end of the recording process so comfortable and breezy and for teaching me all kinds of things about mixing, and generally being a solid human being.
Additional thanks to all the musicians who helped shape this music by being part of my ever revolving band: Mike Whittington, Neal Moignard, Luke Rashotte, Colin Mitchell, Simon Fisk and Kenna Burima.
Last but most, thank you to my family for the unwavering support.
All my love to Kiarra and Leaf.
All songs written by Kris Ellestad.
