But the local music scene came together to make the album a reality. Artist Ian Herrick designed the album cover. Shawn Lawson donated photographs from previous Fourth of July parades and fireworks. SongBuilder Studios in Catonsville helped with the mastering. Matt Regan, who grew up in Catonsville and works at Baltimore digital disk transfer company CDigital Markets, helped with duplication of the CD. Reese received help from Pat Dement, Greg Wall, and Joe Schwartz on technical issues and from Dave Broscious for creative writing.
