Kerrigan began work on the record at Sunset Sound Recorders while pursuing a degree in audio engineering and production at Los Angeles Recording School. A fateful meeting with Ryan Adams (Yes THAT Ryan Adams) would help to shape the sound and style of her work, providing a musical compass to keep the song-writing on track even while immersed in her studies. It would seem as though everything is falling into place now that the album is complete and…
