Thank you Andrew Karsten, Natalie Hix, and Sarah Carmody for making my music sound as it does in my mind. Up until this point, I had done this music thing alone (aside from wizard rock enterprises), but your talent, creativity, and cooperation have made this album what it is.
Thank you Cassandra Evans for making everything look amazing! I know I’m a pain to work with as far as design goes (“So I should do...poses?” “Don’t put me on it...Well, I guess I should be on it...Just a drawing, maybe?”), but you are most helpful in that endeavor. Thank you Andrew Moore for making me appreciate music in a different way each time I watch you perform. Thank you Mary Skuza for letting me use your lovely piano.
Thank you Jordan Alber, the Garth to my Wayne, for supporting me throughout the composition and production of this album. Thanks for the 2AM phone conversations, the consistent hilarity, and even the Stone Cold Stunners throughout the years. Party on, dude. 2 5 9 13
Thank you Mackenzie Bush for always giving honest opinions and for contributing to the best microwave mac and cheese experiences that will ever be shared.
Thank you Caleb Munn for always knowing what to say when the stress becomes too much and for getting my purse out of my car when I was trying to buy a new microphone. You made it clear that this contribution in particular ought to be noted.
Thank you to my family for being so damn naggy and for listening to endless hours of ukulele renditions of metal songs, among other shenanigans.
Thank you John Alexander, George Lester, Holly Harford, Kirstyn Hippe, The Playgrounders, Dani Brown, & Ben Greenberg for just flat-out inspiring me to make this a reality. The internet can be a cruel place, and I’m glad to have people like you to help me through it.
Lastly, special thanks to my Indiegogo supporters, in particular: Aleia Wright; Danny Selgo; David Edward La Ponsie; John Alexander, Head of Nomenclature; Kayla Feutz; KZakfeld; None Pizza, Left Beef; H.S. Field; Ryker Huizinga; & Terry Selgo.
