Mark Rynkun – thank you for everything, from your dirty bass lines, to your continuous encouragement, to carrying my heavy gear to rehearsals!! Without you this album would not be possible.

To all the people mentioned above for your involvement and hard work. I am so lucky and grateful to have each and every one of your amazing talents featured on this recording.

George – thank you for being our rock-solid, consistent, and insanely groovy foundation.

Tom – your playing and singing completes this album.

Thom – thank you for your incredible skills, enthusiasm, attention to detail, and for the countless hours of work you put into this project.

Reuben – I couldn't be happier with the sound of this record. Thank you for doing absolute magic on these tracks and dealing with my all my painstaking incoherent fussiness.

Dean – thank you for making my dream into a beautiful-looking reality once again. Your design is absolutely fantastic, and I couldn't be happier to have you and Holly on board with this project.

To my family - mom, Doug, baby sister Daria, and grandma for your continuous support and interest in what I do.

To all my teachers - Gord Sheard, Dave Restivo, Kyra Millan, Andrew Scott, Doug Wright, friends and peers at Humber College - thank you for pushing me forward.

Thank you to my Kapipal supporters, especially Kyra Millan, Lamie Wong, and Sybil McEnteer for your generous donations.

Special thank you to Rik Emmett for the songwriting guidance, Ian Terry for the words of wisdom, and Alan Moon for helping me continue to grow musically.
