This album was recorded in less than 6 hours. In some places you can actually tell! It’s just me, my trusty old Workhorse geetar and a uke (oh, and a little bit of rotary organ). No fancy multi-layered backing vocals. No ridiculous over-produced studio madness. In fact, most of it was recorded completely live with minimal overdubs.

Despite my relentless gigging on the ‘Never-Ending Tour of Everywhere’ (est. 2006), the album was created because sometimes I just need a project in between projects. Ultimately, the aim was to create a studio album that was more like the live shows.

I hope it works.

A huge thanks to Dr. Chris Sammon for his gift of lyrics for tracks 5, 7 and 10, to Amanda who, is not only the brains of the operation, but also has all the best ideas, and to YOU for supporting live music and having impeccable taste.
