A NOTE FROM GILES

This has been an incredibly ambitious and rewarding project, which has involved a lot of people. I am truly grateful for their hard work.
Thank you to all who pledged in my crowdfunding campaign. With your help, I was able to create the album, that I wanted to make.
Thank you to Tom Richardson, who was a huge mentor throughout the creative process. Thank you to Neil Birse, who helped me produce and kept me sane. Thank you to Ben Lamdin for engineering the recording and advising me throughout. Thank you to Peter Beckmann at TechnologyWorksLTD for mastering the album. Thank you to my parents for their support. Finally, a massive thank you to all the musicians who played and sung on the record- it was truly overwhelming to hear them play and sing so beautifully.

I hope you enjoy listening to the album, as much as I did creating it!
