ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's how the album came about. Pat Carter (vocals) posted on his facebook page he was looking for someone to write acoustic music with. Mike Cooper (guitar) answered Pats post, and unofficially the work on the CD began. Mike sent Pat a few tunes he came up with via an ipad and e-mail. Pat liked what he heard, and started coming up with lyrical ideas and melodies. Pat sent the tracks to Johnny (bass), he wrote some bass tracks, messed around with organ and piano parts, and added programed drums. Pat suggested getting together with Scott (drums) and play the songs in a live setting. It was successful, and the band was officially born. That process continued, and evolved.

Mike would record a scratch acoustic track with a click track and send it out to the other guys, basically outlining the songs structure. Johnny would then add bass and organ or piano and programed drums. Mike would then record his keeper tracks, and embellishment tracks. Pat would then do vocal tracks and harmonies. This was not only the recording process, but the writing process as well. In most cases, there was a demo recording of the song before the guys ever played it in the same room together. After recording 18 or 20 songs in this manner (including a few cover songs), the guys decided it was time to add Scott to the songs they had recorded. So they picked 12 original and 3 cover songs to release as an album and began adding Scott.

Shortly following the release of this CD, the guys were fortunate to add Mike Stephenson (keyboard) to the band. Now live audiences can expect to hear live what they hear recorded.
