Schenker recently had the following to say about his collaboration with Schugar:
"Amy Schugar and I met at a Eric Johnson concert. She was singing and checking out a guitar after the show on the side of the stage when I became aware of her. We immediately became interested in each other and hooked up. I started writing a song for her to ad vocals and lyrics and I realized that it was very good. So I continued writing more music and it developed in to a unique chemistry. We went into a recording studio and put together these songs. Now we are offering it for sale for people interested in this demonstration and we hope that [everyone] will find it as refreshing and unique as the people have who we played it to so far."
