A big thanks to everyone who worked on Look Alive, especially our friends and collaborators Leo Abrahams (who produced 8/10 songs on the album), John Congleton (who produced three songs including “Mind Kontrol”) and Sam Cohen (who produced “When You Go Quiet”).
Also thank you to engineer Graham Lessard, who recorded the bulk of the album, assistant engineers Will Maclellan, Shae Brossard, Sean Cook and Daniel Avila, Collin Dupuis who mixed 8/10 tracks on the album (except for “Summertime” and “Not For Nothing” both mixed by Leo), and Adam Ayan who mastered.
And last but not least — thanks to our families, our team and our crew. We’re a lucky bunch.
Shifting gears — a huge thanks to John Congleton for inviting me out to play on Sharon Van Etten’s new album. It was one of the true highlights of my year and I am thankful to have been involved. Congleton and Sharon created an environment in the studio where we were all encouraged to stretch and embrace the unknown.
What a crew of inspiring and adventurous musicians on those sessions, and an unbelievable batch of songs written by SVE. I hope we make a lot more music together. She’s the best.
