Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Damon & Naomi: Damon Krukowski (vocals, acoustic guitar, drums); Naomi Yang (vocals, keyboards, bass guitar).
  • Additional personnel: Michio Kurihara (guitar); Bhob Rainey (soprano saxophone); Greg Kelley (trumpet); Dana Kletter (piano).
  • All tracks have been digitally mastered using 24-bit technology.
