In the Parlor With the Moon was created for the RPM Challenge 2008. All songs recorded and partially or fully written in February 2008 in the Parlor of the Kirk Estate, with the exception of the guitar in "To the Children of Muu Baan Pri Char Who Are Playing Outside My Window" which was recorded in Muu Baan Pri Char, Bangkok, Thailand. The lyrics for "On the Second Day of April 1489" come from Leonardo DaVinci's notebooks.
We would like to thank Aunt Margaret for allowing us to sleep peacefully as of late, and the Council on Hemlock Hill for always welcoming meandering musicians into their midst.
Thanks to Alex Muro, Dan Pardee, Kim Westcott, Donna Baird, & Nick Matulis for their continued support and encouragement. A special thanks to Mr. Tim Koch, for without his help this album never would have been finished on time. We would like to thank our families, and lastly the moon for being especially beautiful and a source of much inspiration this month.
"Like the Dawn in the Morning" & "The Heaviest Year" were inspired in part by the untimely death of Eamon DeSacia; may he go on and on, like the dawn in the morning.
