Thank you to:
Stevo Burschinger without whom I would have not been able to complete this project. Every hour that I committed
to this production was matched in equal part by Stevo’s voluntary commitment and every decision I made sought
his approval before being carried out. The music on this album was a product of both of our efforts and he had as
much a hand in shaping it as I did. Thank you, Stevo, for all your hard work. I cannot wait until the next project that
we will lead together.
Stevie Rae Stephens who served an integral role in developing my songwriting in more ways than I can count, and
equally as importantly, provided me with the confidence and ability to carry out my skills as a vocal performer. She
made time to write and record with me while away in England and has single-handedly helped to inspire much of
my music. I would not be as proud of this work without her involvement. Thank you, Stevie Rae, for your support,
helpfulness, and everything else you do, I love you.
Alec Nystrom and Sam Kantorik who served as my solidifying band on the album. Both of them agreed to perform
on the album without hesitation and carried out their parts with an undeniable excellence. Their musicianship
helped to provide each song with a certain uniqueness and consistent relatability that I do not think would have been
accomplished with any other set of musicians. I love you both and thank you for your playing, dedication, and
commitment to my music.
Zak Coffey, who, aside from taking the time to master the album, has taught me more about audio production
than I have ever learned in the classroom. His willingness to expand my skills as an engineer is exemplified in the
quality of this work and it cannot go unsaid that where I am today, including my recent admission into NYU, is largely
credited to Zak’s efforts. Thank you, Zak, for being my mentor for the past four years.
Thank you to my parents, siblings, and extended family for their continual support of my musical endeavor;
Lanier Sammons who restored hope in myself and many of my classmates; Alyssa Polzin who has served as a consistent
support in my life; Jared Valenzuela who has always been there and supported me in everything I do; Jeff Tarango
and his family for being the reason I stuck with music; My recording technology classmates, with, before, and after me,
including Victor Gil, Nick Harral, and Joey Pendergrass for their continual support and feedback on the album; All of the
Music and Performing Arts Department Staff and Faculty, including Adam Pardee, Travis Gonzales, and Marisela
Chavez who would not hesitate to provide us with studio access; All of my college roommates, Dean, Niko, Mike, Josh,
Aaron, and Sadie who tolerated the consistent replaying of my music; Josh and Nick Fryou at River Guys Productions for
taking liner photos; Molly Harvis for her beautiful trumpet playing; The boys in Victorian Sky; Shanna Kinzel and Greg
Harbert for their support; Enrique Rios-Ellis for making me create this liner; Carlos Tottress for his vocals coaching;
Lexi Gadd for her support, inspiration, and love; YOU for reading the liner notes of an independent album;
CSUMB Alumni Center for funding; And John Mayer who is the reason I decided to write songs.
-With love and the most sincere appreciation, Greg.
