EARLY RECORDINGS

These recordings were to be our first release: the Lost In Desire EP. There exist a few homemade discs out there, but not many. These tracks will live here for your enjoyment.

"Already Let Go" is a song I had written for a project in 2006. It became a starting point for us playing together and making arrangements. We made some great changes. Never did get around to a full band recording though. Shame. Credits: Jorge Figueroa - guitars, vocals; Vinnie Thomas - percussion, production, engineering, mix

"For Your Thoughts" is a song we later recorded as a band in our State of the Heart EP. I had written it way back in college when all my songs were love songs. It was always a fan favorite and has gone through a lot of change. I was happy to finally record it as a band and let it go. Credits: Jorge Figueroa - guitar, vocals; Vinnie Thomas - production, engineering, mix

"Lost In Desire" was a song we loved performing live. It had a lot of character and did well in rounding out our sets. Originally slated to be our sixth track on State of the Heart, it was replaced by "Meant for Me" days before we hit the studio. I always imagined it being a lock for the second project. Maybe I will come back to it one day and give it the polish it deserves. Credits: Jorge Figueroa - guitar, vocals; Nick Kallies - guitars; Rob Morgan - bass; Vinnie Thomas - production, engineering, mix

"Far Away" was a recording I had started for a solo project back in college (again, you can note that it is a love song). We performed it as a band early on, but it was the first to go once we had gathered more material. This recording is a combination of several different sessions. The last one being Vinnie and me tracking vocals in his storage unit and chopping the thing down to pop-song size (a common problem in my early writing). I'm not sure this is the most appropriate place for this track, but it is where it will live for now. Credits: Jorge Figueroa - guitar, vocals; Josiah Reid - drums; Dan Lawonn - guitars; Isaac Kremer - bass; Andre Rodriguez - keys; Jasper Nephew - engineering; Wayne Thomas - engineering; Vinnie Thomas - engineering, post-production; Zach Parnell - mix
