Album Notes
We play melodic folk rock that sits somewhere between the old school classic folk rock of Fleetwood Mac and the modern country pop of Brandi Carlile. We'd like to think we play music for anyone who can relate to strong harmonies, rich acoustic/electric guitar blends and popular song structure.

We recorded this album from summer 2015 to 2016. Originally intended to be a quick EP project it evolved into something much greater and more important to us as a band.

It includes our single “Coming Back” about the path we took as we struggled to put the band back together after Alan’s death. We like to think of it as a cathartic closure to a new beginning because if it weren’t for this song none of the other new ones would’ve ever been written. I (Björgvin) struggled with writer’s block for about 3 years after Alan’s death in 2011 and it took this song to bring me out of it. We're really happy to finally be able to put it on an album alongside all of the other songs we've played and written throughout the years.

Special thanks to everyone involved with the production process and their talented musicianship who played on the following tracks:

Rebecca De La Torre - Piano on “Coming Back”
Sandy Carter - Pedal Steel on “Big Bear City” and “Where Do They Go”
Robert Colville - Mandolin on “Little Broken Wing”
Brendan Nostrant - Electric Guitar on “Perfect Pocket”
Ian Stewart - Trumpet on “Going Slow”
Sigurdór Guðmundsson - Bass on “Dispute”

As you can see, we got some great help from a lot of really talented session players, and last but not least the incredible Tucson High Orchestra department that plays on Something (All Around the World), arranged by Robert Hanshaw.

Produced, Recorded and Mixed by Björgvin Benediktsson at The Icelandic Embassy and Saint Cecilia Studios.
Additional Engineering on Acoustic Guitar and Vocals by Chase Welch, and orchestra by Steven Lee Tracy.
Mastered by Ian Shepherd at Mastering Media

Special Thanks: Nancy and David Rodriguez, Liz Pocock, Eric Schaffer, Steven Lee Tracy, Alan’s family, KXCI, Jessica Breen and the Tucson High Orchestra Department, and all the other friends, family and fans who have supported us throughout the years.
