I'd like to give special thanks to my wife Rachel Ehlin
for helping me see this album to completion.
I'd also like to thank Chris Prescott and Tom Zinser for their great drumwork,
Pall Jenkins for his dark art
and Jeremy deVine at Temporary Residence for his desire and passion.
This album is dedicated to my grandparents whom I greatly miss.
Without them this record wouldn't exist.
