Cutting edge "Talk Rock" by a group that will turn you inside out then fill your intestines with helium and make balloon animals out of them. Always accessible but by turns hilarious, moving and deeply profound. often all in the same song.
This album was recorded, mixed and mastered throughout 2011 by Corwin Fox. The art and jacket design was created by Skyler Luke Punnett. You can find more of his work at www.skylerpunnett.com
SK&SSL would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts: Paul Crawford of The Penticton Art Gallery, for all you do. Skyler Punnett, Adam McIssac, Petrice Brett, Daniel Lapp, Christina Zaenker, Michael “The Fry” Treadway, Melissa Bandura, Doug Cox, Dave Robertson, "the kids", the Fox family, every helping hand along the way, and most definitely Mr. Corwin Fox.
We are so thankful and always grateful to our loving families, our supportive and amazing friends, and to our fans, without whom…well…without whom, none of this could happen!
