A few years ago, when I began writing songs, I found several close friends whose talent and heart gave the music more life than I ever could have alone. Soon people began asking if we'd ever record the songs. So we spent a few days recording them in a beautiful cabin on a lake in the woods, and the results were imperfect, campy, old, real, simple, honest, fun, and generally pleasant. We hope you enjoy. Thank you to everyone who helped me more than they know or I deserved: Chad, Bruce, Chris, Rodger, Jeff, Peter, Greg, Dad, Suzi, Rick, Jamin & Alyssa, Emily & Esteban, Seth, Brad. Mike C, Laurent, Jus, Erdie, and FreqMan from the freesound project. Mom & Dad, Sister & Mikey (& Daney!), my girl Deanna (song 5!), Suzi, Jess, Amanda, Wes, and virtually everybody in my life for supporting me.
