This album is a dream which came true thanks to many people.
Thank you to everyone who generously pledged to my Kickstarter campaign. You made this possible.
Additional thanks to: Dan Siegler, who poured his heart and tremendous talent into every song, and took me more seriously than I have ever taken myself; to the performers and engineers who lent their talents to the production of this record, with special thanks to Vic Anesini for contributing the mastering.
Thanks to my family, for their support of me and my music pursuits, always: Mom, Dad, Aaron, Grandma Lil, Aunt Maggie, Uncle David, Hugh and Victoria; the Falbs and my extended family; my “aunties” and lifelong family friends who have been with me every step of the way.
To David Reynolds, my soul brother from another mother, for unwavering belief in me and endless encouragement: Just keep heading toward the light! Wes, for carrying me through the past year and a half, in so many ways; Adam, Ron, and Drew, for sharing in my songs and giving me my first home in NYC; the Gabriels, the Foxes, Becky, Kate, Mary, Linda, Jenny, Emilie, Marissa, Suzanne, and Theresa, for your friendship and steadfast excitement about my music, always.
To all the friends I have met along the way – in Guilderland, Geneseo, Albany, DC, NYC, and the other places life has taken me – for bringing me so much joy, and giving me a reason to write songs and play them; to those who have supported my musical journey by coming to shows, “liking” my Facebook posts, offering words of encouragement, and showing love in too many ways to name. Also, gratitude to my fellow musicians, for the music that has enriched my life and inspired me, and whose examples of bravely following their bliss, has inspired me to follow my own.
Thank you to everyone who listens to these songs. It is a gift and an honor to be added to the soundtrack of your lives. I hope they bring you some of the joy and comfort they have brought to me. I hope they reinforce your understanding that none of us are alone in what we feel, and that we are all connected, and part of one another.
