There are so many folks to thank for support on this album!

special thanks to the countless friends & family who put up with this project, which surprisingly was far cheaper than buying and operating a small yacht.

my hearty thunderous applause & enormous gratitude to all the fantastic musicians, each one a far better musicians than I am, for contributing to this album.  without you there would be nothing.

THIS ALBUM IS DEDICATED WITH LOVE TO ALL THE OPEN MIKERS EVERYWHERE WHO BELIEVE DEEPLY THAT COMMON SENSE IS FOR PUSSIES.  

THE TRULY MAD OPEN MIKERS  WHO ARE JUST DELUSIONAL & STOOPID ENOUGH TO REFUSE TO ACCEPT THE OBVIOUS STARK REALITY THAT “DREAMS ARE MEANT TO BE CRUSHED. IT’S NATURE’S WAY.” -greg kotis
