Album Notes

Remember a time when you heard songs on the radio and those songs crept their way into your mind? Remember how the melody stuck with you for the rest of the day? Remember when you bought the record, you listened to the whole thing and loved it as much as “the single”?

the SHEERS are a product of that time.

In the Spring of 2003, singer/songwriter Danny DeLaMatyr had made the move from big city to bigger city, relocating from Dallas to Los Angeles upon taking a gig as the guitar player in Old 97’s front man Rhett Miller’s touring band. After the short but critically acclaimed tour, DeLaMatyr settled into his adopted city.

Around the same time, drummer/songwriter/producer Luke Adams was finishing up a two-year stint as the touring drummer for Pete Yorn’s band and was aching for a creative outlet and a well-deserved rest at home.

A mutual Dallas friend, drummer-turned-bass player Bill Shupp, introduced Adams to DeLaMatyr. Adams, being a fan of DeLaMatyr’s first band “The Days”, (who Shupp had turned Adams on to years before) quickly offered to produce/record his newer material. After two months of collaboration, it was evident that what was developing was a tangible musical relationship. It was clear to both that a band had to be formed from this collaboration. Re-enter Bill Shupp, and the SHEERS were born.

Thus began a two-year process of writing, recording, and gigs that has culminated in their brand new release-“Goodbye World”.

“Goodbye World” hearkens back to the period when the “album” reigned supreme. From the mid-tempo soft rock of “Nothing Against Her”, to the sonic paint-splash of “Something Wrong”, it is a record that should be listened to in order, and in its entirety.

The influences are strong and clear. From the McCartney-esque “It is What It Is” to the Supertramp pop craft of “What You Decide” the SHEERS draw from their heroes yet inject their own pop sensibility, creating a sound that is not only unique and catchy, but timeless.

Great, Fun Music
I honestly cannot be sad and listen to the first track, \"Goodbye World\" on this CD. Cheers me up every time. the SHEERS have a unique sound and the audio mastering is great; the sound quality is as good as any CD you\'ll buy in a store.

I highly reccommend buying this CD. I get into an instant good mood whenever I play it! My favorite songs are It Is What It Is and Nothing Against Her. Sexy!
