The Making of "I Hold Gravity" 

Thank you I See Hawks in L.A. who lit the fire for this soundtrack of our travels; co-writers Bobby, Ernie and Ed who helped gather the wood; Paul Lacques, who fanned the flame; the exquisite musicians who stoked it blazing; Alfonso Rodenas and Michelle Mancini who made it sparkle; Mitch Zelezny, Steve Croes, Stephanie Spehar and Lindsey Smith whose insights shaped it; artist Christine Spehar whose art design graces it.

 

Produced by Paul Lacques and Gerry Spehar; Recorded by Shawn Nourse, Gerry Spehar, Paul Lacques and Chris Tuttle; Mixed by Alfonso Rodenas; Mastered by Michelle Mancini (Larrabee Sound Studios)

To my beautiful Susan:  But a token of your glory.  I hold gravity and I love you.
