ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robert Wilkinson's ace new band, The Snaps, creates powefully pure Americana rock with whispers of alt-country. The songs are enhanced with great dynamic interplay between twin guitars and sweet vocal harmonies.

Terry Isachsen creates clean, cutting melodic leads along with some down and dirty slide playing.

Jenny Case builds fluid bass lines that are totally bad ass and sings the sweetest back-up vocals, ever.

Kirk Hall delivers drumming that is rock solid - the anchor that holds it all together and drives it forward.

Wilkinson writes songs that are simple and straightforward with odes to misfits, surrender, passion and pain,
with lyrics that are cryptic and evocative, simple and rapturous. His songs celebrate the dark and the light of life
with melodies that will float inside you head and heart. Wilkinson describes the sound as "dirtysweet".

From The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jon Bream's "Pick Six" column, December 26, 2009:

The Snaps, "Rain On Me" This track on "Spokes and Wires and Shiny Words" by Robert (Flamin' Oh's) Wilkinson's
other band is the best Band song (think Levon Helm) I've heard this year. It's the fiddle-flavored Americana ditty about faith, asking God to let his "love rain on me and set me free."
