Part of the Redemption Center multi-album.
This 5 song EP started out as a result of my having some studio time at Woolly Mammoth with Sir Dave Minehan, and wanting to go in and do some very straight ahead Tom Petty type rock songs. Not quite content with that, we recorded the oddball song Mayfly, and added a bunch of Pet Sounds type harmonies on a few songs courtesy of Craig Small and Mike Oram.


released June 24, 2016

Produced by Phil Aiken and Sir David Minehan
Mixed by Sir Dave at Woolly Mammoth Studios in Waltham, MA
Basics recorded at Woolly Mammoth by Dave
