Album Notes
Sons Of Slim band mates - Bill Browder, Eddie Cantu, Layton DePenning and Greg Jackson - have been writing songs and playing music for over 40 years now. As you listen to the songs on their debut album, you can sense the experience and maturity they bring to their song writing and, indeed, the arrangements and production of these wonderful songs.

The songwriting on this album presents a microcosm of diverse genres and styles that range from Americana to Folk to Latin grooves to Bluegrass to Pop, Rock and Power Trio. The vocal harmonies and writing evoke memories of their favorite bands and writers - such as The Band, James Taylor, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Beatles - while remaining distinctly original.

One to listen to again and again
I've been enjoying music from all the guys in Sons of Slim for more years than I'd care to remember. This album beautifully integrates their disparate and considerable talents. It also underscores the difficulty in trying to pigeonhole a genre-defying band. The CD Baby page lists the album as 60's rock. Fair enough, but there are also inevitable (and welcome) influences from a lot of the music that has made Austin so important for so long (it makes sense as the members of Sons of Slim are among the influencers). Put simply, the songs are very good, the vocals are superb and affecting and the playing is what you would expect from veterans of one of the world's great music scenes. The production and engineering are ideal for the project; this is one of those albums that benefits from repeated listening - lots of new stuff to appreciate each time through. I should add that Bill's song "Tumble" is one of the less-subtle seduction songs in recent memory.
