Album Notes
The beginnings of the songs for Come On Home were written by songwriter/lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist, Nicolette Fendon, following the break up of her10 year romantic and musical partnership. The songs reminisce heartbreak hangovers and cradle the listener with whiskey-soaked lullabies; they are born out of cornfields, cold winters, and rust belt love letters. The sound is heavily inspired by Americana, Singer/Songwriter, and Motown music, with influences that can be traced from Patsy Cline and Ryan Adams, to Heartless Bastards and The Lone Bellow, the sound remains uniquely northern backwoods. Employing violin, upright bass, keys, harmonica and pared-down percussion, the songs are built around the foundation of sweet, swelling 2 and 3-part vocal harmonies and driven by the aching heartbeat of the bass. The energy created is electric, heart-pulling and captivating -- you can't help but stomp your feet along with them.

Fendon's songs were highlighted by SPIN magazine as a part of their "Undiscovered Bands Worth A Listen" segment, and she was short-listed as a vocalist by Belle & Sebastian for their God Help The Girl project. Violinist, Dave Belden, is a member of the Chicago Sinfonietta and was a musician for Chicago Shakespeare Company.

Come On Home was recorded and mixed by Jeff Breakey at Hinge Studio's, Chicago and mastered by Carl Saff of Saff Mastering.
