The previous 2017 release Bridges & Borderlines has been described as “sonically rich and layered with performed and tasty instrumentation...the tonal quality of the finished product is excellent.” - Bryon White/The Damn Quails. The EP featured notable Oklahoma artists including Bryon White, Scott Hunt, and Brent Krueger and was recorded at the T. Hodge Lodge in Shawnee, Ok.
