Welcome The Band's debut album is the start of a journey of three friends. Determined not to let distance equate to a stagnation of music productivity, the band realized that the power & speed of the Internet and digital recording environments can be used a tool to create music. Their first album - Unbeliever (The Internet Sessions) - is a reflection of the disbelief that 3 guys from 3 seperate cities could actually produce an album together. The techniques used are simple enough but time consuming. Each song was laid down in a raw, rough 'concept' format, usually just a drum track, vocal and guitar to define the layout and feel of the song. Each band member then overlaid, as a unique track, their contributions on each song. These tracks were then uploaded to a server for the other band members to listen to and improve upon. These tracks were then synchronized in a progressive mix, no small task, that was repeatedly refined and perfected over a number of weeks & months. The results retain the raw feel of the live performances but enable the band to explore different instruments and techniques.
