Several of the new record’s tracks were recorded live by Scott Campbell in a home studio in Hollywood originally set up for Shelby Lynne. Other compositions were tracked with Tim Boland at White Light Studios in North Hollywood.

“David Steinhart’s been a perennial cottage industry goldmine for those who carry torches for soft, finely crafted, windswept pop. David writes and sings warm, literate, sober, preoccupied folk pop, always well-crafted…” — Jack Rabid/The Big Takeover

“David is still one of my nominations for best relationship lyricist, but he’s become one of the rare ones to let adulthood and marriage inform songs that would previously have capitalized on failure and youth.” — The War Against Silence

“In addition to the wonderfully jangly guitars and busy violin a special treat here is David’s vocals, at once heartbreaking and supremely confident.” — Daggerzine
