These Fading Things
'There are no weak links on this album, and that's a rare statement to make these days. The disc ends as strongly as it begins... It's been a while since I have heard an album that has so many strong possibilities in so many genres.

A week before I went into the studio I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I've often joked about not having any children because my CDs are my babies. But this year, I was extra productive. I created my third musical 'baby' and my first child, Zach. My life could not be sweeter, and I thank God for all of it. I'd like to thank my husband, Josh, for his unwavering support and encouragement. Thank you for believing in me, I love you. Thank you to all my co-writers (Ben, Carolyn, Jeff and John) for putting a piece of yourself into these songs. To all the musicians, thank you for adding your color to the canvas. It was a pleasure working with each of you. Special thanks to my Suits, I love each of you, thanks for your friendship. To Erick J, thanks for putting together an amazing group and thanks for your patience with me. It's finished! Cliff Foster, thank you for giving us free reign of your garage and space heater for a few days. Mike, thank you for transforming Cliff's garage into a vocal studio and for freezing your fingers off with me while we recorded vocals. Brrr. Thank you Eric, Don & Chaco for an excellent mastering job, x 2. Thank you Lance & Melissa, for your amazing photos and your friendship. Thank you Rachel Pearl and Drew Burchfield for the countless nights I've spent in your guest rooms & refrigerators, y'all are true friends. Last but not least, thank YOU, yes, Y-O-U, for supporting my music. - Treva.
