ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
26-year old songwriter Joshua Dennison prepared The Aeronautical Legends for take-off in 2003 while finishing recording the debut disc Rocketeer. When sparse four-track recordings began to take shape with the addition of rocking drums (courtesy of part-time Legend Nate Zickefoose), the songs he had been signing in his basement for years began to move into a different dimension.

"It wasn't until we recorded a slew of songs for another release that things started to make sense" Joshua says. "We were fished around by these A&R guys and offered a bogus contract, but by the time we found out the shady part, over half the thing was done!" So with an album beginning to take shape, there was not turning back.

The result is aught-four's Rocketeer, an absolutely gorgeous acoustic power pop record. Optimistic lyrics and sugary sweet melodies give way to driving rock rhythms on some tracks, while being expertly balanced with sparse acoustic arrangements on others. The lyrics and upbeat tone will draw some comparisons to Fountains of Wayne, but the rich acoustic textures will leave others reaching for the Coldplay comparison.

Any way you look at it, Joshua Dennison has made a simply terrific record.

"These songs are just hummable" Joshua notes. "I think years of listening to wonderful pop bands has left its mark on me."

This is clearly evident on the surprisingly mature Rocketeer from The Aeronautical Legends. No blazing single, just a solid collection of brilliantly crafted songs. With a debut like this, we can't wait for the follow-up...
