In loving memory of Vaughn Simpson Charles. This album is dedicated to all of the fantastic people in my life.
Special thanks to:
-Florian Tinschert, for use of his recording microphone, for stealing his roommate's Yamaha steel-string and letting me borrow it for this record, along with his peculiar Squier Stratocaster (which can be heard on "Idle Talk" and "Elysian Fields").
-Nelson Santos and Tim Mansell for extensive previewing, advice, and for providing constructive criticism for all tracks. You guys were the second pair of ears for this album.
-Aston Grieco, for taking it upon herself to create a visual universe for the music to exist within!
-All my friends and loved ones for their support and advice, for putting up with me, and taking care of me (the result of my own stupidity) on multiple occasions.
