about

This album is dedicated to my Grandmother, Miriam Wilson, who taught me to love music! R.I.P 1923-2013

I have SO MANY friends I would like to thank but here is a short list of people who either helped in a direct way or inspired me or encouraged me to finish the album:

BENGT ALEXSANDER is one of the super coolest dudes I have EVER known. I could not have made this album without his recording expertise, his miraculous patience and his long suffering friendship!

My husband, DUSTIN GIANNOPOULOS, is truly a magic man!!!

My former co-workers: SCOTT FRY, JERRY LYON, JARROD WEEKS, LYDIA WOODSON AND PAUL PETROSKEY for putting up with my CRAZY ass in a professional capacity and also for being wonderful friends and total rockstars who set a very good example for me of how to keep up with the daily grind while still being able to churn out meaningful art!

Assorted badass buddies: JAY DOWLING, JON DOWLING, PAM HANLIN, IAN SEMASKO, JASON WRIGHT, ZOE WESLOWSKI, GREG CISLON, JORDAN WEEKS, BEN BLANCHARD, BRIAN COLLERAN, STEPH & JESSE FLATI, MARYBETH KULIN, MAURA JACOB and many MORE!

My sisters: LIZA LEWIS & KITTY GRENINGER

My parents: PAT & SKIP GEORGIANA

Special Thanks to MAURA JACOB & TRAVIS STRAUB and MARYBETH KULIN for the use of their homes at various stages of the recording process.

Track Name: A Dragon is Not Your Friend
scott fry gave me a dragon calendar at work today. I like 'cause it's full of dragons & it also says what day it is.

the dragon from the 1st of may is scarier than yesterday. the fire from his breath looks hot. I really really like dragons a lot.

but a dragon is not your friend, my friend.
he'll get you in the end, my friend.
he'll lure you to his lair & then...
he'll make you wish that you were never born
'cause his heart is full of scorn

a dragon calendar counts down the days till next week & the months & weeks that follow in a haze with vexing regularity.

you should have known, this dragon from the start, was hoarding treasure in his heart. He'll dazzle you. you'll think he's good, but you will end up dragon food 'cause...

a dragon is not your friend, my friend :/
