Hors Service Thanks:

There are many people to thank for the support that has helped me along in this process:

First and foremost, to the friends and family we have now and to the friends and family we have lost.

Thank you to the Beck House: Ben, Gill, Elizabeth, Nick and Hannah for allowing me to use their home as a recording studio and tolerating my noise, I am so blessed- a million thanks!

A big thank you to Stewart Stranahan for tips, pointers and letting me mix in his beautiful B.I. studio, cheers!

Marlène Fortanier for the wonderful album artwork and taking the time to help a friend out from all the way out in Paris, merci beaucoup!

Allyson Yarrow Pierce, Tom Barton, Robbie Osterman, Kevin the Texan and Pam Wachtler for letting me utilize their photos in the creation of the album artwork

Thank you to Grace Church of Bainbridge Island and Charlie Powers for loaning me the necessary bits of microphones and recording equipment that made this album possible.

Thanks to Il Grande Emanuele di Sicila! What a pal, what a guy- thanks for putting me up on your futon and for your very informative cat explanation.

Thank you to Dabtown Studios and their wonderful Producer, Dan Onufer

Plzeňský Prazdroj!

Svenska Turistföreningen for endless inspiration in the arctic circle, tack!

Thanks goes out to being unemployed and having the time and inspiration to multi-track a record, couldn’t have done it without you. Hors Service is all in the spirit of being “out-of-service” to the employed world, dealing with endless job interviews, emails that lead no where, too much work force competition, feelings of professional inadequacy and blah blah blah… So it goes!
