Fans of this Taos/Santa Fe, NM band know the group does not limit themselves to any one genre and this CD reflects that variety. With the able backing of Craig Neil on drums, percussion and background vocals, and Dave Toland on bass guitar, the tracks take the listeners through a range of styles from alternative country and rock to blues.

Co-written by the band, the songs have well crafted arrangements that employ Jimmy Stadler’s multi-instrument talents.  At home on piano, electric guitar, mandolin, acoustic guitar, organ and harmonica, Jimmy Stadlers’s musicality shines throughout the CD, which is anchored by his lead vocals. Produced and engineered by Craig Neil at his studio “Sound Choice Production” in Santa Fe, NM, the band enjoyed the creative process with a schedule that allowed them to “get it right, not just get it done.”  Voted Best Rock Band in Taos for seven years in a row this CD shows why their appeal goes beyond the rock category.
