Current members: Dan Haas, vocals and guitars; Jamie Watkins, drums; Josh Chapman, bass; Joe Morson, keyboards
Founded in: 2001
Style: indie acoustic rock
Influenced by: Crowded House, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Guster
Notable: As of two weeks ago, the band was preparing to record a show at Rams Head Tavern for a future live double-album. The band only has one album, Wishful Thinking. It's time to cut album No. 2, and a live record was the easiest way to do it, Haas said.
Quotable: "We've had a long run without a record," Haas said. "The first record was a painfully long recording process, trying to get everybody to come together in terms of studio time. This is a great opportunity to do everything the way we play it all the time: in one quick shot."
