ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Every morning ski instructors at Alta gather together to greet their students in a morning ritual called "line-up". They arrive early, filled with the energy of an early morning run. Sometimes there are songs. At the 70th anniversary of Alta in 2009 several retired instructors showed up at line up. Arm in arm they sang songs from the old days.
I liked the tradition but I didn't like the songs. They said nothing about Alta, who we were or what we did. I went to work on this project right away and started writing songs. But I had a problem. This album would require enormous musical energy and I didn't know the musicians who could pull it off. In 2013 Max Brennan joined the Alf Engen Ski School at Alta. Together we found the sound that we wanted.
This album of original songs was recorded between September, 2015 and June, 2016 at Sourdough Studios in Sandy, Utah. The songs are a blend of everything from rock 'n roll, to rhythm 'n blues, bluegrass to country, with a little bit of classical music rolled in. Our hope is that some of these songs with find their way into the unique culture of Alta. Brian and Max
