All songs initially written January-March 1998 between Steev Dinkins and Scott Chavez. Over the years a few attempts were made to complete or re-record these songs, but nothing ever quite materialized in a finished form. Instead, other musical avenues were explored. Finally, after 12 years, official production began in the summer of 2010 to complete 10 out of the 35 available songs as an album. Kenny Pardo began tracking drums with Steev over the course of 9 days, and edited through November 2010. All other tracking of guitars, bass, and vocals went into production from November through March 2011, with final mixing, tracking, and editing tapering off into May. This album was lived with and meticulously crafted for 10 months - daily, patiently, obsessively, and with 12 years to ponder its meaning, very purposely. Each song in the album represents a period or phase of life, and together they represent a lifetime.
