To Wendy Christensen my partner in life and love who I not only fiercely admire and adore but who revels in my ways with wonder and devotion. Linda Mackley for continuing to bring me her incredible thunder amidst my rain. I could not play without her! Wendy Schneider for her boundless tenacity in getting things done and rocking the world every step of the way. Hannah Fury who’s relentless support and friendship got me through many restless days and nights, forging our sisterhood and bringing her own style of inimitable beauty of sight and sound into the world. To Mike Fazio for his ability to sculpt sound so masterfully and for all the coffee and cold glasses of Stella Artois. To all the incredible musicians who contributed their musical voices to this album and made it shimmer. To M.Scott Young who graciously allowed me to rummage through his Plenty Room and for the use of his tympanis.To my beloved feline tribe still here with me, I owe you all the credit for my joy! Boo, Oliver ,The Zazu bear, George “Yorga Banoushe” Hermione “Mishka” Annie “the Schpoody” with the pinkest of noses, Ms. Daisy A’Dare, Laszlo and Gerty Mae Brown. And to those who have moved onto Summerland Nicholas, The Groots, Sophie Shaloolie, Boris Pinsky, Milo “Beast”, and of course my wonderful Angeline.To my beloved Starkweather Creek who’s beautiful serenity is evidence of Heaven. And once again Harald Lowy + Kalinkaland for continuing to believe in me.


This album was created in memory not only of the beloved feline companions I have lost along the way but in particular to The Lady Cat, Angeline (alias: Victorine) my extraordinary Abyssinian who left here too soon and took away with her a vital piece of my heart. I have written How The Devil Falls In Love for her. It is she who inspired the theme of loss, longing and madness that drives Fools and Orphans. “Dear Angeline, living without you here has buried me alive” I’ll see you all again someday~

Blessed Be- Jo Gabriel PS: Dear Beast, I didn’t get out of the water!
