This is a collection of new songs, covers and reworkings of tracks from my other albums performed live in front of a small audience in early 2010. It took a surprisingly long time to finish this record, because whenever I went back to work on it, all I could hear were the mistakes. I owe a lot to Jherek Bischoff for his work in finalizing these mixes and for his encouragement that these recordings were worth releasing.
I'd also like to thank Ryan Hadlock and everyone at Bear Creek for allowing such an unconventional project to take place in their beautiful studio, Kurt and Nancy Bischoff for opening up their home for our rehearsals, and Max Beery and Sarah Schmidt for their help on the day of the recording. I am very grateful to the musicians I was blessed to work with on this project and to all of the people who lent their time and energy to be part of the audience. that night. I also must thank Mary Hathway, wherever she may be, for introducing me to both “Aeroplane” and “From the Morning” on a mix tape she gave me many, many years ago.
