Hey! My name is Kristy Nease and I'm so glad you've made it here! Isn't it just wonderful? Doesn't it make your heart swell up?
We Did This For
a very, very talented
who lives in Ottawa, Ontario.
If you're not familiar with his work, you can listen to the latest Michael Parks album here. Here's some stuff under his own name. Here's his page on the Kelp Records website. And here are some music videos he's done! He's a talented fellow. I apologize for all the links, but there's no one place to find all of his stuff. I've been trying to convince him to do it.
Now it's time to tell you how this project all came together.
First of all, I'd like to extend A HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU TO ANDY MAGOFFIN AND JARRETT BARTLETT for their generously donated sound-smithing skills! They did the mastering work (and a lot of recording and mixing) for no money at all. They did it out of love and the goodness of their hearts, and I'm forever indebted to them for it. These guys are the winners. The winners.
Maybe you're impressed with their winning and you'd like them to do some sound-smithing work for you! (Not for free though, sorry! They do have to eat, you know.) For Andy Magoffin, please visit The House of Miracles website. For Jarrett Bartlett, simply send an email to him.
Secondly, of course none of this would have been possible without the generous contributions of the incredible musicians listed above (who also did it for no money, just out of love). There are way too many of them to write out again, but you get the idea. Like their covers? Look them up! They all contribute a lot of other awesome stuff to this vast unfathomable universe of ours.
The beautiful artwork for this site was done by Ottawa's Drew Mosley. Want some of your own? Yeah, I understand. When I saw it I thought the same thing... And then I actually made it happen! Get at him here!
And this website. Layla Brown, you've done it again. You are a wonderful human and I am proud to call you my friend. You charged less than you deserve, but don't worry! All the drives to hang with our mutual pony friend are on the house, forever! You can get Layla's contact info for web-related awesomeness here.
Chris Bush! Thanks for hosting this thing on your fun server and for putting up with my ignorance! So awesome! Check out his stuff here.
Rolf Klausener, thanks for the assist with letting our media friends in on this big batch of wonderful. I normally just read the press releases, so it was great to have a helping hand on that front.
And you! Yes, you! Thanks for coming! Thanks for listening! Thanks for sharing! And please do share, because the world can always use a few more happy holiday stories to tell. For my part, this months-long, top secret project officially takes the cake for my favourite Christmas story, ever. I'll be telling it for years to come. I hope you will, too.
Thanks again. I'll never be done saying thank you!
