A few words of gratitude: Deep, unending thanks to the amazing talent of Laura Intravia for both arranging all of this, but also lending her beautiful voice to "I Was Born For this;" to Tommy Tallarico for his unwavering support of Journey in Video Games Live, and especially for including this album as part of his ambitious Level 3 Kickstarter campaign; and finally to Robert Thies for his detailed study of these surprisingly difficult pieces and fierce artistry in performing them.
Additional thanks: Peter Rotter, Christina Lexutt and Gary Wasserman, Vicki Giordano, Milton Gutierrez, Carol Cuellar, Bill Galliford, Ed Lyon and Alfred Publishing, Emma Scott, Meg, Maw, Paw and Sis.
As ever, I am forever indebted to thatgamecompany and Sony for their incredible partnership with Journey. There is no real way to summon the words for how it has changed my life.
