Album Notes
The Townies new 2013 release 'Plug' was recorded at Acadia Studio in Portland ME and includes producing and mixing by Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies, Warren Zevon). Their previous album “one for the Ditch” was produced by Dave Ingham and Dave Martin of O-Positive (Epic-CBS Records) and recorded in Newton, MA.

"The song “Irish Smile” is an honest, hard-working track that kind of gathers you up, deposits you in the back seat of its semi-ratty ride and then drives you off to a fight. The good thing - it’s a fight you know you’re on the winning side of."
- C.D. Di Guardia, Boston Band Crush

The Townies have performed in Boston for years including The Hard Rock Cafe and The Paradise Rock Club. They are a band spread between Massachusetts and Maine. They were formed in 2008 when former Maine band Between Dreams (once hailed as “The Best Band in Portland, Maine” by the Casco Bay Weekly) members David Shorey, Jeff Bacon and Doug Cowan (Welterweight, Bullyclub) reunited and added a new rhythm section of Sean W. Hennessy on bass and Gordon Smith on drums.

Hennessy played professionally with the successful band Waxing Poetics based in Norfolk Virginia and was signed by Emergo ~ MCA Records. They recorded several albums, the first of which was produced by Mike Mills of REM and Mitch Easter of Let's Active. They played arena shows with the likes of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones, 10,000 Maniacs, and cracked the Billboard Top 200 Charts while also having a video on MTV.
