We're keeping a good thing going! Tough Commute was the proof of concept that we dont have to live in the same town to make a CD, and that project was such a success that we just had to do another one. Now Dark Star joins Tough Commute and Reflection in our catalog of original music. Just as before, David "loaded up the van" with all his guitars and amps and drove the 1,729 miles back to the House of Doolescu in Portland. He had just 12 days in Portland, and we put the time to good use, recording 10 original tunes. As before, we brought Ward Griffiths into the studio to play drums, and by the time David had to commute home, we had a new CD. We're all very proud of the playing and writing that went into this project, and we hope you enjoy listening to it. Here are samples of the tunes:
