Special thanks to my parents Christine Mundy and Nandi Johannes for their unconditional love and support, to Robert Apostle for giving me and many other kids the priceless opportunity that is the New Music Ensemble, and to Julia Gargano, without whom these songs would have never been written. I am endlessly thankful for all of you.
Additional thanks to everyone who has performed these songs with me at some point (Aiden Berglund, Michael Eliran, Daphne Gampel, Danny Eberle, Max Beirn-Shafer, Brendan Smith, Laszlo Horvath, Nick Dunston, Leo Didkovsky, Sage Leopold), and to John Hamilton, Jim Pugliese, Michael Schillaci, Imani Russell, Simone Reisman, Julian Soto, Demi Ramos, Jamila Drecker-Waxman, Jolee Gordon, Jhakai Deshong, Alissa Jackman, Jake Zall, Sean Scotto, Abdulah Amir, Joe Ippolito, Tim Regis, Jonah Pomerantz, Ilan Natter, Charles Michie, Caroline Wallis, Siena Rafter, Kristin Acerra, Sam Truglio, Alyssa Fogliani, Dana Saperstein, Nick Veneziano, Antonio Anello, Sofia France, Elise Bell-Alexander, Morgan Bielawski, Justin Wilde, Olivia Zorn and Melina Young. In one way or another, you've all encouraged me to keep making music, and I want you to know that I love you and your encouragement means more to me than anything. This album is for you.
