Remember The Laughter was almost entirely recorded and mixed in my house between the years of 2013 and 2016. I wrote, produced, engineered, mixed, and played most of the instruments. I had great help from some amazing people along the way, and without their talent, advice, and support, this record would not have been possible. I would like to thank them here...
My Wife - For being an endless source of inspiration, and for letting me bounce ideas off of you and always telling me the truth. Sorry about the holes I made in the living room floor when we were tracking drums. I promise I'll get them fixed.
My Son - For always being there to put a smile on Daddy's face, and being my first and best fan.
My Parents - For always believing in me.
Jarrod Alexander - For playing drums on 'Walking In Circles,' 'We Save,' 'Take The World,' 'The Lucky Ones,' and 'Remember The Laughter.' You helped bring them to life.
Doug McKean - For engineering on 'Requiem,' and arranging and engineering on 'Look At You Now.' Also thanks for answering all my questions, and sometimes helping me find my own answers.
David C. Hughes - For helping me mix 'Isn't That Something' and 'We Save' at Skywalker Ranch. You helped make a dream come true.
Gene Grimaldi - For mastering this record, and for helping me learn to mix better and getting me to the finish line.
