Produced and written by Wells, the record was developed through an additional commission from New York’s Grammy nominated chamber orchestra Metropolis Ensemble, who also perform the arrangements on the project. The album also features drummer Shayna Dunkleman and was arranged for chamber ensemble by composer Michi Wiancko.
