ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“…powerful songwriting…stunning acoustic trio…nothing short of mesmerizing.” (Salem Statesman Journal)
“…a unique take on modern folk-rock…breaks away from the mold long enough to indulge in almost early-prog moments…” (Performing Songwriter)
“…vocal confidence with thick intensity that never falters.” (Willamette Week)
“…always observant with a keen eye for honesty, melody, and relevance.” (Eugene Weekly)
This live “unplugged” album continued to chart as high as #2 in the Oregonian (Portland, OR) for several years. Between electric projects, Shipe wanted to keep the material working without degenerating into one-dimensional solo acoustic folksy-ism. So he and Ehren Ebbage brought in Elisabeth Babcock on cello, and together they pushed the most un-likely material into the acoustic repertoire.

Stellar tunes
The trio produces a whole lot of sound for just three people. John's strong vocals and memorable lyrics shine brighter with the catchy riffs and fantastic support from the rest of the band. The cello adds a wonderful, soulful element that you wonder how Shipe ever sang without it.
The CD is all live performances, which give the music an honesty that doesn't always come through on studio cuts. And the music is straightforward and solid enough on it's own that the live performances don't leave it hollow or unfinished-sounding.
