Album Notes
TCL formed in early 2007 when guitarist Josh McClesky and frontman Chase Kerby began playing together after Chase returned from a 6-month stint in Nashville. From there, the full lineup was quickly assembled with old friends. TCL got to work quickly, self-releasing an acoustic EP and a full-length debut, as well as scoring a management deal with newly formed Pavement Nomads Artist Management and a short tour with Action Action (Victory Records), all within the band's first year. With influences including Jeff Buckley, U2, Sunny Day Real Estate and Jimmy Eat World (to name a few) and a surprisingly energetic live show, the listener gets the best of both worlds. Music with feeling and substance combined with enough energy to keep you watching. There is something for everyone inside the music of The City Lives.

"American Kids has all the solidity of some of the best pop-rock albums in the last decade"
-Boyd Street Magazine

"The City Lives are the hopeful spearheads of a resurgence of straightforward rock bands"

Clark Townsend

Not the Same-Old Pop Rock
Great album! A refreshing break from the monotony of mass-produced pop-rock.
