Extracts from the liner notes from the digital booklet:
“These songs were recorded between 23 and 25 March of 2008. The only instruments I used were my voice, my acoustic guitar, and my electric guitar. There was no metronome. There was no Auto-Tune or pitch correction. With the exception of a few backing vocals, there were no overdubs or “do-overs” of any kind. I sang from my heart, like Stephen does. My covers aren’t perfect—there are bits I flub or notes I just don’t hit—but I’d like to think that my labour of love comes across as I intended it: a heartfelt-appreciation for one of my favourite singers.”
