About her first solo album Grace Potter said: "Everything about this record has been a wild, wonderful odyssey. I explore new sounds with each album I write and this time around I learned to be patient and really allow each song boil down to it's most universal form. Eric Valentine's studio has a creative atmosphere that allows an artist to chase down every crazy idea while producing some of the most exciting, high quality sounds I've ever heard. It's been a life-changing experience and I can't wait to take my live show even deeper and dive into old and new songs!"
