This album has been a huge undertaking for me. The amount of time and money I put into this is something beyond what I would have ever thought I'd do for a solo album. But it all paid off in the end. I am extremely pleased to give you all "Into the Dreamstate" in its full form!

I have to thank Chris Vogagis of Wide Eyes first and foremost for writing the closing tracks with me, both of which I feel are the strongest material on the album.

I'd also like to thank my girlfriend Keila and my parents for being the most supportive and understanding people through all of this, all the noise I've made recording/mixing this album, and I'd like to thank Sarah Longfield, Dan Wieten, Plini, and Mark Hawkins for their guest spots. Mark stepped it up and got me a guest solo within a day and it blew my mind! Also would like to thank Chris Purvis, who came to the plate and delivered me a finished product that was far beyond what I could have done on my own! And thanks to Alex Pryle for capturing the album's title as perfectly as I think anyone could. And a very very special thank you to my friend Jan Hoeglund of 8dio for doing up the strings in the final track! His work was absolutely stellar, and I love 8dio products! Most of all I'd like to thank the Lord for blessing me with the friends, drive, and talent to accomplish this.

And of course, I'd like to thank all of my fans for waiting this out. I know I promised it in 2012, but I think you'll be happier with the final product after the long wait!
