"This was my first banjo playing studio gig. I play on "I Shot Teddy." Jefferson Jay is one of the most prolific songwriters I've ever met. And he has a vast collection of awesome original music as a result."
"This up and coming singer-songwriter hired me to play banjo on "Mine" and "The Hitchhiker" because that's the sound he heard in his head. This highly talented young man has a bright future in music. Remember his name."
"This is another fine group of people with whom I am honored to play. I love the easy-going approach to bluegrass and folk music taken by leaders Mark Miller and Randy Hansen. And as this collection of originals show, they both are fine songwriters. Don't ask me what the title means."
"MohaviSoul's first album, which we recorded soon after I met these folks at a coffee shop in South Park. As often happens in band situations, these guys have become the closest of friends. Hanging out with them at gigs, in cars, at hotels, and in green rooms are some of my most cherished memories."
"I had a terrible case of the flu when I recorded my tracks on this. I remember lying on the floor while playing my parts and napping while the engineer mixed them. I'm proud of my performance, and that I did so well under the worst of circumstances. I play electric and acoustic banjo throughout the album."
"This is straight-ahead bluegrass with a few modern twists. We formed the band years before and were constantly asked when we were going to record an album, hence the name. Playing with these fine people is one of the honors of my life."
"It's a little known fact that Ron Houston started the Sickstring Outlaws with his brother-in-law Rizzo. I joined them while going through a break-up. The time I spent recording this with Ron, Rizzo, and Marcy (Rizzo's wife and Ron's sister) helped me to recover. I'm grateful to the three of them for that."

"This was my first studio gig. I didn't play banjo, as the highly talented Patty Hall had that well covered. I sang bass vocals on the title track. I got the gig because I can sing "just be glad" in a deep voice."
