notes on AFTER
This record emerged from a very specific psychic space: feeling out of the past but not yet in the future, adrift in the space between two closed doors - and reckoning with the reality that what you are hoping for might not be coming.
Surrender to the beauty in that possibility.
Because we don’t know. It could be.
BJ Burton, who made it happen - Sean Carey, who gave his many beautiful gifts and rooted the record in the natural world - Ben Lester, fountain of ideas, keeper of the vibe - Adam Rhodes, guiding light - Kyle Frenette, for a new beginning - Miranda Siegel, a wild yosh - Justin Vernon, who gave me a home to create - Jared Feldman, naming shaman - Anna, Greg, and our parents, unconditionally loving and supportive - Alice Cohen, godmother to humanity.
