I started to write these songs as a kind of improvised recording project with string instruments, a drum machine, and a tape recorder. Write and record a song in a single day was my mantra. That awarded me a few luxuries creatively, as I didn't have time to really think too much, or go back and re-record wrongs notes or chords. So, for that reason this record is really special to me, with all it's missed chords and wrong lyrics, and simple ideas.

I met Yuuki Matthews at a party. He encouraged me to finish the album and began helping with the mix and productions. He is really the only reason these demos have been realized in their final form. I am forever grateful to him for his threshold of giving energy and patience with me.

I started playing shows with these some of songs a while back. I have really exercised an open door policy in that, anyone who wants to play, really is welcome. Sometimes, at shows, I give my guitar to people in the audience. Other times, we release fuzz pedals. The name of the record is taken from a book I read that encouraged me by way of doing, and that making music is simply that. Just do it. Everyone is welcome.
