This is part of the 4 album set, Redemption Center.
Having recorded, in relatively quick fashion, the EP Beginner's Luck, it seemed a shame, and even a mistake to shut the factory down. So we moved things over to Ed Riemer's barn/studio in Canton, and in the course of a few sessions, proceeded to crank out an albums worth of material. There is actually a bit more to be completed, but to meet my self-imposed deadline there are 9 presented here. This is a stylistic hodgepodge, ranging from acoustic and rootsy, to punk-pop, and anything in between. Whatever we felt like playing on that day.....
