Thank You Geoff Kulawick for making this happen.

Thanks always Bruce Cockburn for your friendship and inspiration, and for showing me that it’s okay to name names

Thanks so much to Gary Craig, who has been such a huge part of my music and life for the last 25 years, and John Whynot, who has pushed it past the point of chaos for even longer. Thanks to the great, unsung alien hero Johnny Dymond, and thanks to man of constant kindness, Bryan Owings.

Thank you Paul Reddick for your great friendship and masterful artistry

Thanks to Whitey Johnson for letting me be his friend, and Mrs. Johnson as well

Love and thanks to Tom Wilson & Stephen Fearing 

Thank you Brian for your brotherhood and superior rendering.

Thanks once again to Todd Littlefield for getting me to the best places…

Many more thanks to: Bernie Finkelstein, Buddy Miller, T Bone Burnett, Colin James, Twilight Hotel, Cindy Doire, Janet Macey, Richard Macey, Roz Macey, Lori McGraw, Doug Macey, Leah Houma and Gord Macey, Joe Glaser, James Pennebaker at Fender Guitars, Eastwood Guitars, Chris DeMario at Fishman, Don Young and everyone at National Guitars, Michel Pagliaro, Ken Fulghum, Sylvia Giannitrapani, Sass Jordan, Mark Freedman, Bill Kerr, Cheryl Powers, Tracey Brown and Randall Prescott, Kimmie Rhodes, Joe Gracey and Gabriel Rhodes, Andy and Nancy Bouwma (stay well!!)

Three of these songs appear in dramatically different renditions on the album, “Sugarbird” that I made with Paul Reddick. I think of these records as being different reflections of the same piece of time. I hope you check “Sugarbird” out as well.
