Klein, who's best known for his work with such iconic vocalists as Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux, Shawn Colvin and Tracy Chapman, worked with Wright to put together a who's who of masters to round out both the players and the songwriting collaborators. This includes writing work from Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp, J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon and Jesse Harris. In the studio the pair used drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Dan Lutz, percussionist Pete Korpela, guitarists Dean Parks and Jesse Harris; and keyboardists Kenny Banks, Pete Kuzma, and Billy Childs .
