Collaboration has made me the artist I am and it is one of the things I enjoy most about being a musician. I wrote most of this music within the last couple of months and planned initially for this to be a beat tape series. I'm glad I reached out to these artists. They helped turn this project into something greater than it was first planned to be.

The rapping duo, 3913 are a hip-hop group that Sela opened up for last year at a show in Baltimore. We kept in touch and planned to do a project that did not quite manifest, (my fault). These guys are great artists with a style that made my instrumental sound better. I will be doing a lot of collaboration with them in the future.

David Little is a Sela Collective member and Philadelphia native. I have written with him and been witness to his growth as an artist and person for close to a decade. He is one of the best and most interesting lyricists I know.

DJ Foxx Boogie is a well known and respected Philadelphia DJ and B-Boy. He is a promotor and maintainer of all that keep the fundamentals of Hip-Hop strong in this city. Foxx mixed my first beat project, Pieces. It turned out so well I had to ask him to do it again.

Paul Malbrough is a NYC resident who is a friend of the Sela collective and has created album art for Sela member Mike King's album, The Reflecting Pool. When asked to do this and how much it would cost he replied, "I just want to make art and I like you guy's music". Purchase this project so I can afford to pay this very talented artist.

Micah Forsyth is the backbone behind the Sela sound. I met Micah when he was interning at the Larry Gold studio. He moved on and started his own business, Naysayers Studio and gave us amazing rates which is the only way we were able to record for a very long time. Most of our mixes are done by him and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Thank you all for your support. All of your comments, shares and purchases were noticed, necessary and appreciated. Help this movement continue by doing more of that. Each purchase is a down payment for the next project. Your support is an investment in the future.
