ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
AFTER THE FLOOD was recorded at now-defunct Austin game company ORIGIN, in their now-gone THX studio. It was originally released on the now-defunct original MP3.com site back in 1999, where "Maybe Free" was a top ten hit in the Folk-Rock category. For the last few years you've been able to get a physical copy with a lost track, "Winter and Fall," only from CafePress, and now even that is gone.

But now here it is, at last. Most tracks were recorded live in the studio, voice and guitar, with a few getting some additional guitar and bass work from guests Matt Mitchell, Stretch Williams, and Todd McKimmey. It had exactly 24 hours worth of studio time.

After all that, what have listeners said about it?

"...awesome composition, a phenomenal song." -- irenkai on "After the Flood"

"...just gorgeous... Great performance, clean mix and good production... Awesome." - starkell.

"Fantastic crossover style acoustic ax playing...Best damn acoustic material I've heard in a long time. Masterfully played, very well recorded and sung with unremitting soul. Great blues/jazz and rock crossover, This is heavy stuff." - jeez

"This is some of the best folk rock I've heard in a long time. Fantastic guitar playing, fantastic sound. I loved all the songs..." - kalisto 9

"i like the taste of this i do... " -lutsik

Fellow musicians have nice things to say too:

"Nice guitar work, both the picking and the slide... Very good stuff... voice really shines." - Charlie Mosbrook

"As good a delivery of rock on acoustic as I’ve heard recently. Good stuff." - Duane Tate

"A really good voice!... I almost lit a cigarette in the office - it was THAT cool!... exceptional talent." - Ian Simpson of the Beaker People.

"A wicked folk guitarist." - Daniel Fredriksson of Pettersson & Fredriksson
