I am incredibly grateful to have grown up in Portland, Oregon. One of the most beautiful and creative places on the earth. Everything about this project is tied to Portland (PDX), which makes it very special to me. The musicians on this album are beyond amazing. I have so much love, compassion, and gratitude for all of you. Thank you Janice, Errick, Louis, AG, Brian, Israel, Christopher, Renato, Stan, Ben, LaRhonda, Andy, Tahirah, George, Curtis, and most significantly, my mentor Thara Memory. Thara is a gem full of knowledge, honesty, and creation, I am so blessed that he was the producer of PDX Soul. To Errick Lewis, thank you for being there for every musical step and giving your suburb advice and creative ideas as co-producer.
