I want to thank all of the friends that have inspired and encouraged me along the way. To all the musicians, who lent their time and unparalleled talents to the cause.

This record simply would not have happened without the time, talents and patience of Mark Myers, to him i am eternally grateful. My gratitude is also whole heartedly extended to all the musicians who dedicated their time and skills to this project, i can honestly say it would not be even half the record it became without them. A special thanks to all my family and friends who have been so supportive throughout its happening, and continue to be in my ever illusive pursuit of a musical elysium.
