Album Notes
For the alternative band Black Lab, love lost and found is viewed through a cinematic lens. Like scenes from a movie, songwriter Paul Durham shoots every line like a heartbroken reel. He crafts his words with a poet’s eye, the scenes lit with the radiant light of his yearning, soaring voice.

In 1998, Black Lab was signed to Geffen Records and mesmerized modern-rock radio with the haunting singles “Wash It Away” and “Time Ago,” both Top-40 hits on alternative rock and pop formats. The group’s intelligent, heartfelt lyrics and wide-screen guitar attack had them compared to U2. Radio programmers hailed the band as the Next Big Thing.

Contributions to soundtracks followed as their moody, passionate vocals and sweeping guitars landed on the soundtracks of Can’t Hardly Wait, Varsity Blues, Permanent Midnight, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Unfortunately, on the cusp of world domination, their label went out of business, leaving the band’s dreams in disarray.

In 2002, Black Lab found themselves on the soundtrack of Spider-Man, opening another chapter for the band -- or at least for Durham, who produced the band's second album, See the Sun, with new guitarist Andy Ellis. Born and raised in Twin Falls, Idaho, Durham was the mad scientist behind Black Lab from the beginning.

Five years in the making, Passion Leaves a Trace represents the bridge between the first and second albums. from the pitch black of 'this night' to the madness of 'pictures of people' to the obsession of 'mine again,' passion charts the unknown regions of the heart and makes it back alive.

This CD is great. Deeply meaningful music, very rare nowadays. This is my first purchase of this group, won't be the last. Horray to CD Baby for making it available!

Brad Davis

This CD has it all...and does it so well!
Real, radio-friendly tracks, somber ballads, hard-hitting rockin tracks, sentimental moments...this disc has it all. I could go on and on about each track, but I\'ll save you the time...just buy it and you will love it.

Trey Jones

One of the best bands, period.
I can't remember if I've ever written a review on CD Baby, even though I've been a long time customer and not-so-frequent contributor to the site (via my own band.) Black Lab is a gift, and you need to buy these albums so Paul keeps making them. Do yourself a favor and check out their catalog... You won't be disappointed.
