“This album is the result of challenging myself as a songwriter, and then continuing that challenge into the recording studio. – finding new ways of working with friends and their ideas to help develop the songs. They made time for me between work, tours, moving, more work and quite a few miles to not only play on these songs, but to take them to a new level, beyond what I could have accomplished on my own.” said Kizirnis.
