"Greetings, All Ye Playful Prisoners of Spacetime" is the sum total of my life and its movements with music; buying my first tape in the 3rd grade and  listening to The Doors In Concert ad infinitum my freshman year of high school.  It continued taking shape at my first psychedelic concert experience (Primus 1995) and is further comprised of teenage drug addiction and transcendence a decade later. It is the direct result of clearing out open mic rooms and a host of other stage deaths.  It is birthed with my son, my fears of failing him and my will to succeed and to share. It awakens from sleep upon hardwood floors after playing to eight people in Ames, IA on a Tuesday, busking up and down the West Coast for gas money, an almost tragic van rollover and half a dozen blown up engines.  This album is the fruit of marveling over the live albums of the legends and the live performances of countless musical mystics. This is the amalgamation of making the best record resources allow and then taking it to the road at any cost while doing all things conceivable and inconceivable to share the deepest parts of me, both musical and cellular; that which I have discovered and that which the music reveals on its own divine timing.  "Greetings" is a clear snapshot of this band, live, 10 years in. It's my hope the listener feels even a morsel of each painstaking moment that makes it what it is and, even more, that they might have a moment of peace, relief, inspiration, hope or joy on account of it.      

This album was recorded live at Last Exit Live in Phoenix, AZ on Friday, May 10 2019. There are no overdubs or alterations to the recording.
