Album Notes
Baltimore-based contemporary folk trio We’re About 9 releases their new album, Paperdust :: Stardust; a deep and powerful follow up to 2003’s Engine. With a dark, rich sound that illustrates the band’s growth and change over the past five years, Paperdust :: Stardust may be just the antidote fans need offering 12 new songs.

On the record, WA9’s offbeat nature shines. We’re About 9’s unique ability to capture the heart and soul of life’s mysterious ups and downs, makes this record a knockout combination that will give audiences a lot to sink their teeth into.

After taking the show off the road for a bit more than a year, while pursuing careers and other musical ventures, We’re About 9 was ready to get back in the studio. During that time a duo version of the group emerged. Brian and Katie continued playing spot gigs and writing songs, while third member Pat Klink played drums with a local rock band. Paperdust :: Stardust reflects their time apart and musical journey, playing with other artists along the way.

“We started this project most of a year ago as a duo album,” says Brian. “We'd been doing mostly duo shows, but we were also playing a lot of shows with special guests joining us, and we wanted an album that reflected that, and then we started playing a lot of trio shows again, and we wanted an album that reflected that. What we ended up with is the most lovely collage.”

Guests on Paperdust :: Stardust include:
Naked Blue - Jen and Scott Smith
Girlyman - Ty, Nate and Doris
Andy and Denise - Andy Fox and Denise O’Brien
Abbie Gardner of Red Molly

While some songs are duo focused, Pat Klink is also all over this record adding his magic and multi-instrumental talent to many of the songs.

There are planes, berries, and miscreants. There's courting, love, and love lost. And it's all on one disc, engineered by the amazing Scott Smith of Naked Blue.

"The twenty-something threesome's abilities as songwriters and performers is downright superb. Their material is literate, tasteful and often charmingly wistful, and their musicianship and vocal harmonies are world class." WVIA-FM - George Graham, Program Director

Hurray for We're About 9!
This album makes me warm and fuzzy in all the right places.

Beautiful new-folk
It might take a little time to get used to this album - but then it takes not much longer to get addicted to it. Great singing and witty lyrics. 12 songs for all kind of moods.

The latest to date
The song "Nobody Flying This Plane" was the one that hooked me on We're About 9. Since then, I have acquired all of their recordings, and I count them among my favorite groups. Brian Gundersdorf is truly a poet; along with Katie Graybeal and Pat Klink these dynamic young artists create enjoyable, complex songs that I just don't tire of listening to. Unusually complex harmonies and lyrics that range from witty to sublime. A real pleasure.
