There are so many people I'd like to thank for helping make "Everybody Sing" happen. I must begin with the three most important women in my life:
To Tallulah - you inspire me every day. You make me hear music differently. I think it is so amazing that you can come to so many shows with me, and be such a big kid. You make me proud. Obviously, without you there is no Tallulah's Daddy. Thank you!
To my wife, Daniale - I thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. You're out there everyday, doing a very stressful and difficult job, in order to make sure that our family has a roof over our heads, food on the table, insured vehicles to transport us around. I also appreciate all of the support you have given me in pursuing my dreams. Thank you for letting me escape into the basement so often over the summer so that I could complete this project. Thank you!
To my mom, Nancy - Thank you for encouraging me to stick with music lessons for all of those years. Being able to play the piano is what ties everything musical together for me. I remember times when I wasn't very excited about taking lessons, and you would tell me that someday I would be able to entertain a room full of people with my music, and how much fun that would be. You were right. Thank you!
To my fans, young and old - I appreciate you making me part of your weekly routine. It is an honor to watch your little ones grow up, and I truly enjoy the opportunity to share my music with you. Thank you!
To Paul Brainard - Thank you for introducing yourself, for offering to jam with me, and for contributing your astounding pedal steel skills to The Sandbox. Your contribution makes that song for me. Thank you!
To Dan at DanKLife - You are an awesome neighbor and jam buddy, and your skills in the visual arts amaze me. In just over an hour, you put together an album layout that I could not have accomplished on my own in a million years. Thank you!
To my Portland Kindie compatriots - What an awesome group of superstars I get to call my co-workers and friends! Special shout-outs to Mr. Ben and Mr. Hoo, you took me under your wings when I was just starting out, and have afforded me so many amazing opportunities over the past two years. Thank you!
