Skeletons for songs 1-4 and 6-10 recorded at Ninkasi Studios in Eugene, OR, fueled by the marvelous tap right outside the studio, by the infamous James Book. That means "really famous." More recording and magic for these songs happened at legendary studio Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, CA, and Singing Serpent Studios in San Diego, CA.
Engineered and produced by James Book in Eugene, OR, and Joshua Tree, CA.
Additional engineering by Hayden Scott in Joshua Tree, CA.
"Hourglass," "Only Ever You," "Honey Bee," "Pale Ghosts," and "Beautiful Soul" edited by Ben Moore. Strings for "Pale Ghosts" and "Only Ever You" engineered by Ben Moore. Drums on "Beautiful Soul" edited by Ben Moore in addition to very minimal production on these 5 songs.
Track 5, "Long Way Home," engineered and produced by Phlip Coggins at Amusement Park Recording Studio in Lubbock, TX, in the middle of the night on a whim. Additional production and general spacey goodness by Brandon O'Connell.
All songs edited by Brett Wagner, my high school prom date and a very talented fellow.
Strings for "Hourglass," "The Golden West," "HoneyBee," "Beautiful Soul," engineered by Jason Begin. String parts for "Hourglass," "The Golden West," "Beautiful Soul" and "Only Ever You" composed tediously by hand by Gayle Skidmore. Strings for "Honey Bee" and "Pale Ghosts" were a collaboration in studio between the wondrously talented Marta Blalock and Erdis Maxhelaku, and their friend Gayle Skidmore.
Additional production on all songs by Brandon O'Connell, with fun ideas thrown in here and there by Gayle Skidmore. Additional engineering by Brandon O'Connell.
Mixed by the tireless Brandon O'Connell at Singing Serpent Studios in San Diego, CA. Mastered for Vinyl, iTunes and CD by Gavin Lurssen at Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, CA.
