ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was a friends-of-friends cross-pollination that led to the meeting of guitarist Jason Bloodworth and vocalist Ross M. Hull. Bloodworth’s “we should write some songs” was not only a polite conversation maker, but what led to the formation of Greenlight Promise. Joined by a revolving cast, the band hit the NY/NJ live circuit, working out chemistry kinks and developing an overall sound. (Look: you know that bands cringe at writer’s sound-defining adjectives. Let’s say GP is “rock that’s a little alternative” for starters, and agree to listen and decide for ourselves.)

The band soon entered the studio and didn’t leave until completing the ambitious In A Mirror That Lied The Truth. The self-produced 13-song album is the product of a band moving forward in a way most bands today sadly move backward. Simply put, Greenlight Promise is a group actually focused on the craft of song writing.

The first minute of opener “Full Circle” (okay, it’s really the first 1:06) offers a good snapshot of the band’s sound: out-front vocals, clever drumming, similar-but-different guitar parts and a pinned-down bass that all lead up to a memorable chorus. (“That’s our most accessible one,” Bloodworth reckons, and he may be right.)

Lest the listener get too comfy, In A Mirror ... takes left turns with the likes of the five-minute plus “After The Sugar,” where the four-string takes the lead, guitars get fuzzy and the lyrics more cryptic. The whole thing builds into a wall of sound that crumbles into a piano piece.

“I don’t like to say much,” explains Hull regarding his lyrics, but he may be half lying: they do more than rhyme, and touch on universal themes of love found, lost, and found again, sometimes from all angles.

Production subtleties make In A Mirror ... a worthy repeat listen in its entirety; guitars, keys and even violins (“And Everything”) weave in and out of a spacious mix.

The collection ends with the smart, atmospheric pop of “A Song Is Worth A Thousand Pictures,” which would fit in anyone’s iPod hit list.

With In A Mirror That Lied The Truth finally completed and "out there," Greenlight Promise is returning to live performing. "We'll be everywhere," says Bloodworth, who adds that in addition to club dates, the band is looking to appear on festival bills around the country.

Since the record's release, the band has been billed as the best local band by G106.3 FM and its listeners and Philadelphia's City Paper has recently selected the band as one of the best 15 bands in the region stretching from Baltimore to New York. Selections for this year's Millennium Music Conference (Harrisburg), Midpoint Music Festival (Cincinnati), and Mid-Atlantic Music Conference (Charlotte) also show that the band's songwriting talent and intense live performances are starting to garner serious attention.

..::Definetly Keeping This In My Car::..
I honestly haven't purchased the cd yet, but plan to buy at least 2 copies, 1 for me and 1 for my sister in Florida. I listened to all the samples and can't find one song I DON'T like. My favorite is Full Circle, it just starts the cd off so well. This is one of those cd's you just don't want to take out of your car 'cause you always want to have it handy Props to the band :)

Music is tight, vocals a little weak
The bass and drumming really stand out on most of the CD. The vocals are ok but do not measure up to the quality of the music. Overall I really do think the CD is better than most up and coming bands.

High quality CD, great range from harder edge rock to more ambiant sound
After seeing this band play at the G106.3 Beachball at the Surf Club, I had to buy the CD and I was pleasantly suprised by the clear sound of their music, the high quality of the CD and how mature they sound for such a new up-and-coming band. The songs are nicely mixed from more mellow sounds to harder-edge rock. Lots of variety and subtleties on every track. You can crank the CD loud on every song and it will not disapoint. You can check them out at supernovaphoto.com as well.

Nice verses and sound
I liked the whole CD overall, but the first song is my favorite. The verses flow and aren't mindless, so that already makes the CD better than most. I also like the correspondence with the music, nothing is too crazy or out of place... it all just fits.
