On the Lam
The band is called Riverboat and is a side prodject from my normal gig as drummer for the band Floater. The album, On The Lam, is nine songs and about a half hour long. I started with more material but decided to cut it down to something a little more reasonable for my first solo gig. I realize there will be a few folks disappointed that I didn't play some big drum solo on the album but I felt it was unnecesary. Perhaps the next album will have some percussive instrumentals but since I didn't jam with anyone on this project I just stuck to the floor plan. No this isn't the end of Floater (by any means)! I'm just having fun doing what I do best, getting into trouble. Actually it's just that there's a bit of music I've written over the years, some even for Floater, that was usually too different from anything I was doing at the time. That's when I started looking into self producing at home and try to get some of this noise out. I hope you all enjoy the material, it's definitely a little easier going and light hearted than Floater. I look forward to hearing your opinion, you know the usual 'don't quit your day job' stuff. (Damn it Jim, I'm a drummer not a singer/songwriter). Do Good Things; -P.
