ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

If not for Emily Bindiger, you’d be listening to crickets. Emily went above and beyond, then beyond the beyond to brilliantly (brilliantly!), generously, and tirelessly produce this collection.

Endless gratitude to all of the superb musicians on this album, who played and sang their hearts out and made these songs shine. Very special thanks to Emily Bindiger, Jim Gately, Nikki Gregoroff, Phil Klum, Robbie Kondor, Libby McLaren, Bill Mitchell, Matt Perri, and Catherine Russell, for invaluable guidance and support at critical stages of this process. Many thanks to Terre Roche for vitally important wisdom and sustenance in the desolate early days of finding my way back to music.

To my Accidental-and-related pals, my musical family extraordinaire, I am deeply thankful for your voices and your support, on this project and in all our musical adventures.

To my friends and family, without you, I’d be lost and wandering. Particular thanks to Gary Wolf and Michael Wolf for the joy, the many hours, and the miraculous upgrades you have contributed to this project.

To Chris, deepest love and gratitude, always.

This album is dedicated to Margaret Dorn, Dennis Deal, and Patti Wyss.
