ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My Fifty-Five started one hot August in the summer of 2003. Joti had just moved back to Asheville after spending 3 years in NYC studying fashion design, living, and just generally bumming around Williamsburg. She met Ashley Gupton, hit it off, and stated playing music with her right away. Ashley had a beat up old drum kit and Joti had a guitar and 10 years of half finished songs... sung mostly to my white walls and down pillows.

The band was all fun and games until a mutual friend set them up to open for one of their idols, Jonathan Richman. Needless to say that put the fire underneath. five songs were chosen, t-shirts were spray painted with golden unicorns. After that they spent the winter working on new material and playing up to 3 times a week at Vincent's Ear, a small influential club which was located downtown Asheville (www.vincentsear.com). They played as a duo but occasionally Chad Pry would join in on bass and key boards.

By the Spring Ashley and Joti went separate ways. Ashley started writing her own material, witch was quite good, and they were both intrested in playing solo shows and toning it down a bit. Since then dozens of songs have been written, many shows have been played (although significantly less since Vincent's closed - sad), and an E.P. has been recorded.

Joti started out recording a song, "Wolves and Tigers", at Altamont Recording with Todd Kelley and eventually moved on to Six Foot Seven Studios. There she was lucky enough to weasel her way into Brian Landrum's busy schedule and convince him to not only record My Fifty-Five but to play drums as well. Tyler Ramsey joined the team at the begining of the recording process and acted as co. producer, bass, and keyboard/everything else player. The result of which they are all quite proud of.

The self titled E.P. is a mix of rock and roll and post folk, hard and soft. The juxtaposition of these elements helps give the five songs diversity while adding dimension to this thin silver circle I'm calling My Fifty-Five.
