Everything in Moderation
What started out as just a few good friends getting together to wind down after a long work week, soon evolved into a full-blown musical adventure with Settlement releasing their debut album, 'Everything In Moderation' in October of 2005. Settlement - with Chris Whitaker on Guitar and Vocals, Cliff McCabe on Guitar, Bass and Vocals, Bill Livingston on Bass and Vocals, and Jay Tyndall on drums/percussion - play what has been described as 'Acoustic Alternative Jam Rock'. They are heavily influenced by artists such as Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, Widespread Panic and Sublime just to name a few. All 11 of the songs on the album are original works that showcase the musical talents of each member of the band. The guys also get support from the women in their lives. Gwyn McCabe contributes her strong, sultry vocals to this dynamic group and Lisa Whitaker acts as band manager and booking agent. Allison Livingston lends her angelic, blue grassy vocals as well as her amazing artistic abilities to Settlement. In addition to singing, she designed the incredible album cover, a striking and colorful representation of an acoustic guitar. Settlement's soulful, heart-felt lyrics and melodies probe deep into the everyday lives and experiences of this harmonic group. Come on in, settle down and enjoy.
