First and foremost, we would like to thank you for listening to and/or buying our album. We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it! Secondly, we want to thank our families for all of the encouragement, support, and noise toleration over the years. Next, we want to thank everyone on Orcas Island who has helped us (and many others) grow as musicians, specifically: Martin Lund, for his patience, wisdom, and enthusiasm for music that he has imparted on all of us; Pamela Wright, for starting it all off those many years ago; the Orcas Horns, our local heroes; Gregory Books, Tony Morales, Matthew Olsen, and others for lessons and advice; everyone who has helped make music in Orcas schools possible; The Funhouse Commons for the many hours in the music room; Corey Wiscomb (our biggest fan); and Charly, Roo, Zach, Armando, Aaron, and anyone else we’ve played with for all the great jams.
A special thanks to Kellen Comrie and Schuyler Asplin, for adding their creative genius to the album; Melanie Flint for the cover photo; Henri Bredouw; and Jack Becker, Nile Reed, Julia Bailey, and Anthony Ghazel for borrowed equipment.
