Great Unknown 2015
Sean Thomas Gerard
Trumpet, Guitar, Ukulele

Praise

Intimate and dreamy, the EP sounds like a mini-greatest
hits collection pulled from a handful of albums versus being
straight new material.  But it is new, five songs rich in sonic
texture as an elegant illustration of the folly and wonders of
love, of risk taking and struggling.”

Overgrown 2012
Justin Lacy and the Swimming Machine
Acoustic guitars, vocals, percussion, synths

Praise

“With a massive presence and cacophonous yet focused sound, The Swimming Machine has burst upon the scene with a stellar debut that ranges from carnival-esque madness to gypsy folk punk at the drop of a dime.”
The Bottom String | View Article

Overgrown frolics and bows, flits and exaggerates, whispers and screams. It’s attention-grabbing, haunting, beautiful, frightening and fully encompassing in poetic rise and fall. It comes with sweat, blood and tears pored over every note, every break, every chord, every intro, every outro and everything between.

When U Gonna Luv Somebody 2010
Charlie the Horse
Guitars, banjo, trumpet, harmonica, autoharp, vocals

Praise

“It’s a dynamic, flexible and potent ensemble, whether they’re performing arrangements that are stripped-down and acoustic (“Hey Girl”) or rocked-out and propulsive (“Hey Boy”). They use whatever instruments they can get their hands on (kazoo, concertina, autoharp) as well as more traditional instruments, and the result is a band that can be a “normal” rock band or one that’s a bit more wacky, sometimes simultaneously. That’s called range, and Charlie the Horse has got it.”

Monsters 2012
Onward, Soldiers
Trumpet

Praise

“Featuring a handful of standout tracks and a clean but compelling sound that encompasses classic rock, country, blue-eyed soul and even, on a couple of songs, jazz, “Monsters“sounds like a piece of work that could catapult the band to bigger things.”
