The Team

Musical successes are always a team effort and I'm fortunate to have an excellent group of people working with me at various times, all of whom deserve credit. I'm also grateful to have an interested audience. It's the combination of all this that makes it work. Thank you!

Credits & Thanks for Upbeat
