I love this album. Producer David Travers-Smith did an amazing job on Anywhere But Here, from the performances he got out of everyone to the final arrangements he created. And the players were superb. We had so much fun recording this. We put a lot of time into the vocals, especially on songs like "Grow Old With Me", where we tried to create as intimate a sound as possible. One song almost didn't make the cut. I was unsure about "Gone", but David insisted on it. Now it's a standout track on the record. Kevin Breit's guitar part knocks me out.

Cautious Man was the first recording on which I used a producer, Chad Irschick, and it was a great experience. It was hard work but very exciting to work with someone of Chad's talent. I don't have any one favourite song on the album but "Spiritual Advice" is one that stands out for me. I finished writing it on a lazy afternoon in my cabin in Cape Breton. The kids were off somewhere and I had the place to myself. Heaven. However, when I brought it to the studio, nobody was too excited about it. Chad made a slight change in the arrangement and at the next session we nailed it. It has become, for me, one of the strongest songs on the album.
