This is one very talented bunch of local guys! Most of them sing, play multiple instruments, and take part in songwriting. They have 1 full length release in our library from 2006, but this is a short CD of only 6 tracks. Each one of them is well written, and the band has a sound that distinguishes them from the other local groups, especially when they use the xylophone! Starting off, track #1 Valley is a blistering rock jam with some very catchy hooks that might get stuck in your head (some pressure's gonna blow!). Track #3 Run Home is a heartfelt, synthesized track with substance. Track #6 Grace is a quiet, romantic song with sad beauty. A note...they are fabulous live. ~Renae Overbeek
