Recording Break

It’s been a long time coming, but we are finally taking a break to work on our second album! After a busy summer gigging schedule, we are going to kick back and take a month or two to track and mix.

The new record will feature a few live standards that fans have come to love including Stammer and Northern town, as well as some brand-new Keller Glass originals and a few songs that didn’t make the first effort, Clean Slate.

We’d like to take this opportunity to take stock and thank a few people who’ve helped us tremendously over the past year and who, by and large, haven’t been thanked nearly enough for all they’ve done to keep this thing going: Dan Mattchet for his tireless work on the first album; Dave Stillman for his getting us started and his continued influence on the band’s sonic pallet; Niles Krieger for continually bailing us out of tight situations and adding his virtuosic musical talents to those few, delightful shows that he can make; Will Violette for his ever-so-tasteful contributions to our early work; Cristofer Osden for his engineering work on our first album; Dan Anthony for helping fill out the sound and then moving to California by way of Poland, which makes sense I guess; Charlotte Greene, Ryan Leggett, Scott Tingley, & Coco Tremaine for their generous photography work; John Groo for giving us a home; Dru Sanders and David Slitzky for their thankless technical support; Hartford bands Little Ugly, Heirlooms, String Theorie & Sunspots for making the Hartford music scene the wonderful, supportive place that it is; Mike Hamad for filling in for Frank and for his critical eyes & ears; and, most importantly, to our wives for putting up with the late-night gigs and rehearsal sessions.

As you can see, making fine roots-rock Americana is labor intensive and is not the kind of thing that five guys can do on their own. A lot of people have helped us out along the way and we didn’t want to wait for an album cover to thank each and every one of you. It means a lot to us. Thank you.

We’ll touch base again when we’re narrowing in on a release date and we’ll surely post some pictures of the recording process along the way. Stay in touch and wish us luck on our recording endeavors!
