Once in a while you get to work on a project that completely makes your year. Well here it is. The two of us and Amy go way back and used to play in this band called the Whits. Lots of good times, lots of good shows, lots of rock and roll. Fast forward a few years, Amy's launched a solo career having unleashed her soaring diva pipes on live TV for both The Sing-Off and The Voice. We're doing lots of work for Warner/Chappell and one day we decide to bring Amy on board to help write an album based on the hottest pop tracks out there. This project and its fantastic collaborative atmosphere led to us producing Amy's first solo record. And let me tell you, we pulled out all the stops on this, production-wise. We had this list of kinda out-there production tricks we'd been wanting to try in the studio. Well, basically all of those crazy ideas made it into the record in some form or another. It truly channels not only the mainstream pop that we as a writing trio have had real success with, but also the bold, left-field eccentricity of artists like Kinbra, St. Vincent, and Jack White. We had a blast making it, and we hope it makes its way into all kinds of earbuds out there.
