American Hotel was recorded in all 50 states over the course of six years.
Quite a bit of it was recorded by me (Mike) out of the back of my vans in various parking lots,
truck stops, driveways, bars, and anywhere else I could set up without getting arrested.
I also had the privilege of working in some great studios with some incredibly talented engineers.
Being that the record took so many years and miles to make, I'm sure a few people
deserving credit have been accidentally left off this list. So, this page will be updated over time.
Please get in touch if you helped make American Hotel but don't see your name here,
and I'll make sure you're add you to the list.
