Endless thanks to all the Pledgers who made this album possible with a special thanks to my “executive producers,” Celeste Burnum (Mimi), Fran Griffin (Mama), Celeste Burnum Burford (Aunt Lessie), Neil B. Griffin (Uncle Neil), and Jay "Flow" Catalina. To the band for all your time, talent, and creativity.
