This photo was taken at Lurssen Mastering during a very special mastering session with multi grammy award winning mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen (middle). Jerome Jordano (left) is a singer/songwriter from Santa Barbra, CA. who came to me (right), with his notebook full of great songs and a Taylor guitar. He asked if I could record his guitar and vocal then fill in the rest of the instrumentation and I said "That's what I do!". Most of the album was created by just the two of us however, we did pull in Darin Spiegel to play drums on a few of the songs and Eric Brittain played violin on "Following You".
