Thank Yous:
Endless gratitude to Camelia Jade Lazenby for your soulful guidance, your golden ears, your humor and your grounded clarity which let us breath easy as the sound and scope of this album took shape in your care!
George Rezendez and Lindsay Hamilton for opening your beautiful home to our work! Thanks for stopping by during our sessions to offer an ear and pet the Shoob dog, for engineering the early sessions, and for being cheerleaders of our music over the years. Your generous presence in our community and in our lives are a blessing that never stops!
Thank you to Shuba for being with us in the studio as our "Session Buddha" over the years and for grounding our work in the furry, floppy, sighing here and now.
Kate Copeland for understanding these songs and allying your incredible talents, vision, organization and care to their full realization!
Sam Barnes, Julia Biber, Vita Wallace, Hans Bilger, Austin Vaughn, Mike O'Mally and Andrew Sheron for being the band of merry folk we never met but who swarmed around our songs with such beauty that they blossomed more fully into themselves. Thank you for doing what you're doing!
Mark Ettinger for being a total mensch and offering your studio for pinch-hit violin part recordings and for everything else you do and did to keep our dear arranger supported throughout this project.
Doug Haire and the crew at Jack Straw Cultural Center for mastering so masterfully.
Thank you to Kiyota Sage for your beautiful graphics, layout know-how and for giving us the use of your amazing guitar for most of the recording sessions! Your enthusiasm for our music is the highest of compliments from the best of men!
James Curtis for making Kiyota's guitar and for loaning us that other awesome guitar you made for the earliest sessions of this project.
Chris Gilbert for the use of YOUR lovely guitar for those other sessions...and for your delightful suggestions of alternate band names for us if "The Aimées" doesn't work out.
Parker Deen for your beautiful photos and for your friendship and love over the years.
Deep and wide thanks to Ben Bochner, Namoli Brennet, Peter Mayer, Pete Seeger, Richard Shindell, Willy Porter, Laura Veirs, and Carolyn McDade for your incredible music that we are blessed to play and for your creative example that we are honored to emulate and share.
Stephen Levine, your poetry and prose lift our hearts to a greater knowing of life, death and love. Thank you.
Thank you to Ward Serril for your vision and inspiration that helped launch our video and thus our Indiegogo campaign and thus our album into reality.

Great and Beautiful Mystery that brings life to us all, we are grateful to you for the music that moves us to sing and find beauty every day.
We also offer our deepest thanks for the encouragement, support and delight so generously given by ​family, friends, our beloved community in Port Townsend, WA, fans & fellow musicians in the wider tribe.
We dedicate this music to you who envision a more beautiful world, one where communities of music and song are the center of our days and nights. May this music add nourishment to your good, true, and beautiful work in the world.
