In the midst of a 45-city tour, the "must-see band" (NME) who "bring to mind the vocal harmonies of Crosby, Stills & Nash" (AOL Music) are winning fans with their amazing live performances throughout the United States and Europe. This year's Lollapalooza was especially memorable. "With their set on the BMI stage cancelled, the band serenaded a group of fans on the Hilton's lobby piano while the storm raged outside," (Billboard.com) surviving "Lollageddon," as they coined it.

Comprised of brothers Joseph Dunwell (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (guitar, piano, banjo) along with cousins Jonny Lamb (vocals, drums) and Rob Clayton (bass) and longtime best mate Dave Hanson (guitar, pedal steel), the band emerged from the pubs and clubs of their hometown, Leeds, England.

Recorded at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio outside of Austin with Grammy-winning producer and Roxy Music bassist John Porter (Bryan Ferry, The Smiths, Ryan Adams), the 11-track album features stellar musicianship, classic roots songwriting and soaring harmony vocals.

"It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, recording that album," Joe Dunwell says. "A band of five guys from Leeds coming to Austin, Texas, in Willie Nelson's studio, to record their debut album: You couldn't write something like that. It was amazing."
