We will be having a CD release party at Tangled String Studio on Friday 2/8/19 where we will be selling the recording in the ancient format of the compact disc and performing selections from the recording as well as new compositions.  Ticket information will be available soon!

I would like to thank everyone involved in the long process of writing, recording, mastering, and cover art design that went into this project. 

Thank you to the members of the group, Steve Motz, Tom Branch, and Nick Walker for taking my compositions off of the page and bringing them to life on this recording and every live performance we do of them. Thanks to Nick for writing one of my favorite tunes on the album "The Mo You Know".

Thank you to Jim and Terri Cavender at Startlingly Fresh Records http://www.startlinglyfreshrecords.com/

for their dedication and patience in the process of capturing this live in the studio recording and mixing and mastering it.  

Thank you to Ginger Freeman for allowing me to use her mixed media piece "Fragile World" as the cover art on the album and for all of the beautiful thought-provoking visual art she puts out into the world.

Thank you to my teachers "Spanky" Alford, Jeff Beasley, Tim Cummiskey, Jim Cavender, Keith Taylor, Mark Zaleski, Peter Evans, Leo Blanco, Ben Schwendener, Will Riley, Phil Weaver, and Eric Hofbauer for the invaluable lessons in musicality, technique, and composition. 

Thank you to my wonderful wife Megan for her love and support as well as putting up with my daily scale practice and transcription obsession.

Thank you to my parents for encouraging me to do what I love, the many years of paying for lessons, and putting up with me learning and practicing various instruments throughout the years.

Thank you to my friends, family, and students for continually pushing me to be the best version of myself ,
