Vermont's Northeast Kingdom-based Rock band The Evansville Transit Authority (ETA) recently finished recording their first album of all original material. The band, which has been performing together for twelve years in and around northern Vermont, has typically focused its efforts on performing classic hits by Rock, Country, and Blues artists. Now, the time has come for them to apply their unique artistic touch to songs of their own.

The resulting self-titled album, recorded and mixed by engineer and producer Bennett Shapiro at Lovetown Studios in Middlesex, Vermont, is a mixture of styles that range from straight-ahead Rock to Contemporary Blues, as well as hints of Alternative Country throughout. The band’s intentions for the album were simple. “Our goal was to create something that demonstrated the breadth of our influences,” states guitarist Kyle Chadburn. “If we’ve covered the style in the last twelve years, it’s only natural that it has impacted our own music as we write. Some of these songs are brand new; others are nearly ten years old.”

The songs are not isolated genre studies, however. Instead, each track blends styles within itself, offering the listener an opportunity to pick them apart and listen closely for inspirations to surface here and there. “It’s a challenge,” ETA drummer Travis LeBlanc explains. “If you can pick out all the influences as you listen, then you must love all the same styles and musicians that we do.”

The next step for the band is to take the songs on the road, where they belong, and reinterpret them on stage the way they have with others' songs for so many years. "It will be a fun experiment to see if we can find new ways to play these tunes live," says bassist Chris Doncaster. "We kind of pride ourselves on being able to perform songs a little differently each time, and these originals will be no exception."

The band will continue to perform in and around Northern Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York, and is ready to share their music with as many people as possible. "There aren't a lot of things that last for twelve years anymore," comments guitarist Adam Choiniere, "so we're proud that the band, and a lot of the songs, have done that."
