** Named #7 Edmonton Album of 2013 - on GigCity.ca! **
This record is dedicated to Carissa Halton; you are so much like the Mountains to me - impressive, compelling, overwhelming, beautiful, challenging and ever-changing.
Thanks to Tim, Kyle, Tyrn, Andrew and Doug for playing on the record! You made it your own. And to Tim for the album art design.
Special thank you to the Edmonton Arts Council for the all-important financial contribution that made this possible.
