Loveland is the first solo release for guitarist, producer, arranger Pershing Wells. This is also the first release on the new Digital Sac-a-Lait™ record label formed by brothers Ken and Pershing (more to come about this at a later date). The album includes eight songs. All but one (a Beatles song "In My Life" from the classic Rubber Soul album) are original compositions. Most songs were written in the period between 1989 and 1995 while chief engineer at Appletracks Recording Studio in Houma, Louisiana. It took three months of non-stop work, dedication, and Love to complete this project. The album is in the genre of Adult Contemporary/Jazz/New Age with an edge of funk in the mix. There are two tracks featuring vocal performance and the remaining six are instrumental. Background vocals are performed by popular New York singer Lisa Lowell. Bass guitar on two of the tracks is played by Tim Dusenbery, a great singer, songwriter and friend.
