"Special thanks to the lovely Lyla Ocean and to the flight over Saskatchewan for inspiring the songs written while I was on the road.
Thank you (forever) to The Grand Old Lady, you brought me the love of my life and the best 4 minute performance I'll ever have on any stage.
And lastly, thank you to the trains, planes and automobiles that took me across the great Canadian landscape to inspire the making of this album. As you listen to the album, you travel with me from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean (and there's literally a recording of the waves from the shores of Cape Breton) Enjoy the journey."
