I don't wanna be a bummer. A year's worth of writing and month's worth of recording put towards what I believe to be the best that Tailpipe Distillery can create in its current state.
Creating this album was a blast. During this last year I met a lot of really cool people and musicians, I played a few really awesome shows, started and finished my first semester of college, and went through a handful of jobs. I learned a lot through music, work, school, and just existing. This album is kinda a record of the last 365 er so days condensed into about 23min.
After completing these songs I decided that it's time for Tailpipe Distillery to change. I'm not really sure what it'll be changing into, but I hope it'll be something great in the future.

This album would not have happened at all without all my friends, old and new, as well as my family, who still put up with my screaming. (sorry Mom)
Thank you to Luke Hendricks, Lance VanGlahn (I think that's how it's spelled), Jesse Grease, Max Narotzky, Tim Nieuwenhuis, everybody from Camp Nejeda I worked with last summer, and a bunch of other people I probably forgot to mention for listening to my music and being cool and supportive even when I sent you the same song like 7 times to listen to again and again (Sorry Tim)
A huge thanks to Allison Stroyan for making the album art (which I love) and also for her feedback on the album. She was a huge help with the art and with the recording process. Allison makes some fantastic art which you can see more of here: www.behance.net/destroyan
Another huge thanks to Matt Sacchi for being an awesome friend. Also thank you so much for letting me use your recording equipment and giving some really helpful feedback. Also, sorry I only ended up using one of our recordings (Caroline). Matt was a huge help with the recording and I hope we can work on more stuff in the future.
An equally huge thanks to my amazing girlfriend Caroline for just willingly putting up with me for the last 6 months even when I was just being dumb. You've been a huge help to me in almost every way these last few months. I love being around you and just knowing you. Thank you so much for putting up with me.
One last huge thank you to my family, especially Cat, for letting me continue to live here after spending a few weeks screaming and playing guitar too loud.
To anybody I forgot to thank personally, I sincerely apologize.
