I would like to take a moment to show my appreciation to some of the people that have helped me along this journey to this first album.
Julie – you gave me a guitar, food, pedals, food, love, food, and occasionally, cookies. Thank you for everything.
Timm – thanks for always being Timm. You always inspired me. Made me think and made me laugh. Even now, miles away from each other, and with my bad contacting habits – you’re still my friends and brother.
Omar – I finally got a banjo!
Rick – you gave The Storyteller a name & a title. You also helped me find strange new sounds along the way.
Ric – always fun with puns and wordplay, but also thinking of things from new angles.
Shawn – You helped me start this. Hopefully we can share a stage again, and work together in a studio. (Pause)
Cap’n – Thanks for all the laughs! And for (trying) to keep me on track.
John – Thanks for the photos, and the totally geeky music discussions.
Don – Always fun, always interesting, always new, and usually with food.
Preston – What can I say? I admire ya. And you make me laugh and think.
Mr. P. – You introduced me to Tom Waits AND John Milton. You sorry yet?
Brian – Thanks for all your work with Mastering, and being a cool cat.
Shepherd – Yeah, I went there. Thank you for everything.
The Andersons, The Smiths, The Baileys – HI! And… You know… Thank you for everything.
Dan – Happy to have you as a friend & a fan. Wish we could have met under better circumstances.
Tres & Raj – You were there from the beginning – Noodling on the guitar started to turn into songs and experiments from a mad scientist. Now, this is the beginning all over again. No Endgame.
