As You Fall
They have just released their fifth CD, titled 'As You Fall'. Recorded at Rax Trax and Alien Soundscape studios, in their hometown of Chicago, IL. Their previous four releases are 'Cowboyville", 'A Clear Moment', 'Just Another Line', and 'Trying To Get Along.' Their work has won them several awards, including songwriting awards, from Ascap and Billboard. This eclectic band is made up of multi-instrumentalists all drawing from different influences and backgrounds. Often including guest musicians and different setups to alter their sound. This is probably why categorizing their sound or style has depended on the listener, as well as the project. They've been described as alternative-rock, alternative-country, and even celtic influenced-folk-rock. They've participated in some higher profile events including ASCAP's 'Writers in the Round' in Los Angeles CA, South by Southwest in Austin TX, the Folk Alliance Conference in Jacksonville FL, the Midwest Music Summit in Indianapolis IN, Midwest Acoustic Music Festival in Elkhart WI........To date, they've played throughout the US and have been invited to open shows for a variety of popular national acts such as Wilco, Los Lobos, Ben Folds, and Seal, to name a few. Radio exposure includes spins and in-studio performances on FM stations throughout the US, including some larger market stations with spins on WXRT 93.1FM (Chicago) and in-studio performances on WLUP 97.9FM (Chicago).
