Mom & Dad: For being so completely supportive of me and my dreams. I cannot imagine having more awesome parents. You guys will always be my biggest fans.
To my Bros: It occurred to me that this album was a sort of bizarre Venus Bloodline reunion. I'm glad we all got the chance to play together again.
Richard: I need to thank you specifically. Your talent and professionalism are incredible. This album would have been recorded without you, but it's a million times better with you on it. Working with you was the easiest and funnest part of the whole process, and your studio experience and advice made it infinitely easier too. I was thrilled (and relieved) that you were available to work with me. I also need to thank you for introducing me to...
Jim: I don't believe in luck, but meeting you when I did really tests that belief. You're an amazing musician, and one of the genuinely nicest guys I have ever met. I couldn't live long enough to pay you back for all the great music, let alone everything you've taught me. If I was the brains behind this operation, then Richard was the heart and you were the soul.
Corey: For putting up with my harassment, and for understanding how important this project is to me. And for laying those tracks down fast.
To all my family and friends: It may not seem like much, but all of the kind comments and likes on facebook really encouraged me to get through the days I wanted to throw in the towel. It really helped knowing that I had a bunch of people looking forward to hearing this. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
