Produced, composed, arranged, performed, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Tim Haufe.
This album is an artistic culmination of songwriting, arranging, performance, and most importantly, composition. I am proud of this work for its depth of sound and its quality. I believe it has soul and means something good.
Recording started in February 2012, and was completed in January 2014. The majority of the recording was done in Poughkeepsie, NY, with the remaining sessions taking place in Washington Heights in New York, NY.
