(from the liner notes)
30 different skies…30 different songs. It is raining out while I write this in Fredonia, NY and it was sunny when I first got the idea to do this in Atlanta, GA back in springtime.

Some of these songs were recorded in high-tech studios, other on a karaoke machine. Some were given to me on DAT tapes…others on tapes that probably would’ve snapped had I played them once more. But all of these songs have one thing in common…the people who made them are passionate about their music…their expression. When choosing artists, I did not consider how little static was in their music, but rather how genuine their “product” was.

It will be snowing soon. All of us will be writing new songs that you may hear somewhere else. You might be able to do it all at once…or it might take five sittings…experience the thirty skies collected…here.
