A million thanks to everyone who took part in the making of this album. We’re blessed to be surrounded by such incredible and gifted people. Over the years we’ve honed our recording experiences to make the most of their talent and time and hope you enjoy this album as much as we have enjoyed making it.

Personal thanks to:
both our families… who are always there for us with support and distraction / Mary, for pointing me in the right direction… likewise Barry Kerr… you both have impeccable taste / Lynette Fay for helping out with the translations and pronunciations / Mark Anstey for sharing the vision / Andy Bell for the remote session / Cath and Quin for not being the slightest bit bothered about what we do for a living / Ben and Carolyn for regular curries and gossip / All those who watched the weans during vocal takes… hats off!

Heartfelt thanks to Timothy and Aoife who managed to fit in a bit of singing between hectic touring schedules and to Beth for permitting us to alter a few words in her beautiful song, and to Michael for this beautiful artwork.

This album is for Noah, Colm and Elizabeth.
Three suns at the centre of our universe.

Cara & Sam, 2014
