"We recorded this project in late August 2020, still in the middle of the 'unknown' and dreadfully missing the connection of an audience and the one of a kind feeling of playing live," said Dawson. "This was the first time my band and I had played these songs since we finished recording them earlier that year and was the first time I had really sang in months. The first time I got to have a taste of the 'live show feeling' that I had probably taken for granted. I'm so glad we got to immortalize this moment.
