Can you tell us about your experience with Producer Gordon Raphael and engineer Richard Dodd?

Joe: Working with both of them was easy, invigorating, and edifying.

You have been writing together for the better part of a decade, how has your songwriting changed over that time period?

Danny & Joe: Its changed in that we all learned a lot more about the writing process. We all see the songs as a whole as opposed to individual parts. We are more driven about the finished product as a whole. Our collaborations are more fluid because we have a strong understanding of each other musically.
