Album Notes
Growing up together in rural Pennsylvania, Garrett Cummings (guitar, vocals), Abe Kline (bass guitar, vocals), and Taylor Cummings (drums) were raised on home-grown music. After playing in high school rock bands and gigging the bars as acoustic acts through college, the trio came together as a three piece band in Raleigh, NC in the summer of 2007. Quentin "Q" Jones (congas) joined New Sweat in the summer of 2008, adding his smooth rhythm and energy to the band. The addition of Doug McCullough to the New Sweat roster in May 2012 filled out the band's sound with keys and even more vocal firepower.

'No Instructions', New Sweat’s debut LP, is a collection of road-tested songs that have shaped the sound of the band over its first few years. Drawing on a wide range of pop, 60’s & 70’s roots rock, and singer-songwriter influences, “No Instructions” grooves with southern-tinged foot-tappers (“I Didn’t Ask”, “Young Angry Country Boy”), college-jam-band ditties (“Sunny Day”, “Did It To Yourself”), and delivers sincerity in pop-friendly ballads (“Duck Duck Goose”). “Strummin’”celebrates the simple, homegrown roots and values of the band, while “City Locked Down” acknowledges the allure, excitement, and inevitable trappings of the downtown scene. On 'No Instructions', the bluesy tendencies of Garrett Cummings' guitar riffs are firmly backed by the uniquely funky bass of Abe Kline and busy, percussive drumming of Taylor Cummings. The debut record serves the songs well as the presentation is listener-friendly, yet the band never pretends to be something it's not.

While New Sweat has been gigging regularly in the Raleigh, NC area for the last few years at local bars and clubs, "No Instructions" seeks to expand the band's listener base and set the bar for more records to come.
