Nowhere home, and never alone. My dear friends,
No man is an island, and no one ever stands on his own. Though my name is on the cover, though these songs were born out of my own ideas and dreams, this project would have remained forever in dreamland without the love, support, and talent of many others. “Nowhere Home” is dedicated first to my parents Bill and Shari who chased their own dreams and believed in me, my siblings Isaac and Steffrie who encouraged me, and Wayne Stewart and Carlo Furlan who mentored me. Foremost, this album is dedicated to my wife Lauren who married me, cared for me, partnered with me on the project, and loves me so well. Finally, to Jesus Christ who made me, forgave me, saved me, and called me.
Special thanks to Deanne, Jim & Marcy, Bill & Gina, Calla, Karen, Jenni, Joe & Joan, William, Laurie, Nathan Mark, Casey & Anna, Will, Grace, George, Joyce, Paulie, Phil & Brooke, Nick, Marcia, Susan, Ryan, Benjamin, Caleb & Melissa, Shana & Danny, Diana, Scott, Matt, Lynn, Scott, and Ryan & Laura for your selfless support.
