Alex DePue – “There were many people who helped us bring this recording into reality! The largest thanks I have to offer is to my partner in crime, Miguel De Hoyos, for endless inspiration.

Many thanks also to Stuart Barr, Denise Levy, Christopher Richards, Tony Christoff, Andrew Glasser of Glasser Manufacturing Inc. (for making perfect bows!), Connolly and Co. for providing me with the finest strings available (Thomastik-Dominant), Hammond-Ashley Violins in San Diego, CA, and all of our friends and fans who support what we do! We hope you find this one as TWISTED as we do!” 

Miguel De Hoyos – “Realmente seria imposible mencionar a tantas buenas personas, amigos, familia y benefactores que han colaborado en este proyecto. Algunos han preferido permanecer anonimos, pero eso no basta para que se sean olvidados. Stuart Barr, que siempre esta ahi, Mis amigos de Godin Guitars, y mencionar especialmente a una gran amiga y benefactora, Marilu Cole, de el Hotel La Mision.”
