I'll try to keep this brief as I can so you guys may actually read it :)
This record was created in New Zealand over the course of one beautiful year.
It was all made possible by countless and miraculous encounters I had with people on my travels in Australia and New Zealand (with a large tribute to the unforgettable time spent performing on Wellington’s colourful Cuba Street).
I would like to thank all those who jumped on board with me in making this record possible, and had enough faith in the music
A huge thank you to the main BOSS, sound engineer Abe Ginnane for the hours spent. He is incredibly patient, humble and talented.If it wasn't for him introducing himself with a little note in my tip hat while I was street performing on Cuba Street, this wouldn't be what it is. At all.
The artwork was done by my dear friend Sarah Rowan Dahl in Sydney. Digital layout help by Lauren Sexton from the Ventura, California, mastering done by Jared Adlam at Machine Lab Studios, Australia.
I would like to wholeheartedly thank all the incredible musicians (shout out to my brother Jordan Gray) who I met on the streets and music bars of Wellington who said yes to giving their time, love and talent so generously to me, a short little 'stranger' with a guitar on her back.
Thank you dearly to the BIGGEST love and support from my family, parents, siblings, loved ones and untold number of folks who trusted me to pre-purchased this album, making it possible to become a physical reality.
Lastly, thank you and warm hugs to my dear friends Martin Chamyan, Josh and Elle, Polly Hoganson, Lance Gilbert, Troy Gilbert, and Brent Fletcher who had the ability and faith to pledge above and beyond to the Kickstarter Campaign.
May I continue to look up thankfully knowing that when we receive, it is always to give back.
