Recorded sporadically over a 2 year span by George Thimmesch, David Mahnke, and Ian Sallmann at George's home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. What started out as a 6 song EP grew into this full-length record accomplished through countless hours of dedication to a sound that melds our three musical backgrounds and styles. We hope you will enjoy listening to these songs we have created. There are plenty more on the way. :)
