I made this album in my home studio over the course of the last 3-4 years. It was difficult and a big learning process. Along the way I kept learning more about engineering as well as how to use my voice in a way that I'm not totally unhappy with. I also decided I wanted to go the DIY route for mixing and mastering, so I did a lot of learning about that stuff. Which is to say I did a lot, then re-did a lot, then re-did it all a few more times. I'm not totally sure I shouldn't keep learning and fiddling and tweaking, but that would likely break my brain so I'm calling it done. Pencils down.

Big thanks to my friends and allies that helped me out by singing and playing on some of the songs. And very very big thanks to my wife for listening to it so many times at various stages along the way and giving all the best feedback.

I hope you like it.
