persono is a Latin word and loosely translated it means "something created through sound" or at least that's what I was told.

Why I'm Leaving Soon was an experiment in recording an improvised jam session between Shane Lynch and myself to tape. I liked the results, so after overdubbing a little keyboards and bass guitar -- also improvised and done in one take -- and a minimal amount of editing, the tracks were properly mixed and mastered.
