I'm so happy to finally be releasing a collection of some of the things I've been working on. Some of these songs are old, and some of them new. I am so incredibly excited to be able to have something to share with everyone. Forgive the spiel, but as this is my debut album, I'd love to say thank you to a couple of the wonderful people in my life:
I would not be anywhere without the support of my friends. They have truly been my family and I am blessed to have them in my life. These are just a few:
Steve Paxton, Tom Adler, Polly Ferber, Paul Brown, Daniel Siuba, Dave Badstubner, Benito Plaza, Adam Cook, Stephanie Nagler, Annie Ritchie, Lynn Marie Rusaw, Larry Hinz, David Grey, Melanie Monsour, Martin Delabano, Michael Munoz, Suzanne Kimbrell, Marc Uchniat, and the rest of my musical and non-musical family.
My parents, for always encouraging me to be creative and supporting my dreams. There are no words to describe how much they have done.
Scott Jarrett, for being my mentor and teacher in the studio. I could not have created this without his help and guidance.
And lastly, Elise Southwick, for teaching me three chords on the guitar and giving me the confidence to sing, in exchange for a bologna sandwich our first year living in the desert.
