My darling beloved brother and best friend Jon Matthew Langley shot himself on December 30th, 1999, ending his life and forever changing the lives of his family and friends. Jonjie and I were partners in art and music from our earliest childhood together on up till the end, following in our Daddy's footsteps as singers, guitar players and poets; it was the only way we knew how to be.  From Nashville, Tennessee to Sioux City, Iowa, from Normandy and Brittany in France to Vienna, Austria and back across the Channel to London, England, the Langley Brothers sang and played countless songs and gigs and made countless friends and memories. My pal Diddo had the brightest light, the tenderest heart, the biggest grin, the funniest wit, the richest voice, the craftiest lyrics, the coolest chord changes and the funkiest-ass way of playing bass I've ever had the honor and privilege of experiencing. All his life I loved and treasured him as my beautiful best friend, and as a master of his artistry, as I will for the rest of my life.

I dedicate this album not only to the memory of Jon Matthew Langley, Jonjie, Diddo, my brother in blood and soul, but also to the spirit of love and beauty he once embodied, where he now, most assuredly, fully and rightfully dwells.
