Album Notes
Analog recording takes the listener back in time to the intimate experience enjoyed when the vinyl LP was slipped out of its jacket, placed on the turntable, and culminating in the magic moment when the needle hit the wax. Recorded in the living room of an 18th century farmhouse, our goal was to capture the feel and warmth of our live performances. Analog recording, the precursor of digital recording, is captured on reel-to-reel tape. We believe analog recording represents the rich and authentic history of the artists who came before us. We have welcomed the analog and hope you will too!

This endeavor is truly an in-house production, a cohesive collaboration of family and friends. Except for the amazing percussion work of our good friend Stuart Gunter and the beautiful vocal harmonies of Tom’s daughter Emily Shipman, everything else heard here is simply the two of us contributing creatively to each other’s songs.
