Product Notes

Windjammer. Best described as chill rock - a genre created from a blend of influences including Dispatch, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Pink Floyd, and Maroon 5. Windjammer is made up of Wally Wallace (vocals), Brian Cheyne (guitar), Sean Williams (piano/bass), and Steve Sherlock (drums). Wally grew up on Loggins & Messina, and is largely influenced by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Dispatch. He loves music so much that one day he woke up and decided to hitchhike six hours to see one of Dispatch's members perform with his new band, State Radio. Brian learned to play guitar by sitting down and learning every single song ever written by Incubus. Since then, he's been influenced by Sting and John Mayer. Unlike Wally and Brian, Sean got into music not really knowing what he wanted to do. He started playing bass because he felt like he needed a hobby, and his good friend at the time recommended bass. Over the years, Sean's influences have grown to include Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground, and Bob Dylan. Steve started doing music with the goal of being a session musician. Steve comes primarily from a jazz background and is also largely influenced by hip-hop artists such as The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, and Dr. Dre. He will be attending Berklee School of Music in January for drum performance. Windjammer first got together in February 2004. After a variety of members came and went, in January 2006, Windjammer finally got a solid guitarist and drummer. With this new addition of Brian and Steve - friends since childhood - Windjammer was ready to roll. The band worked on recording several songs for a demo, and in April 2006, began playing their first shows around Colorado Springs - where all four members went to high school together. During this time, the excitement of playing shows for people, the promise of a standing gig at a local club, and a company's offering to help license to film and television motivated Windjammer to really get serious as a band. Today, Windjammer's members live across Colorado, playing shows throughout the state at venues such as Avogadro's Number and Cervantes. Windjammer recently teamed up with recording engineer Bill Douglass (who has worked with artists such as Smashing Pumpkins and R-Kelly) along with around 15 other musicians and performers to create their debut album: 'Sweet Relief." The album has 17 tracks and is almost 80 minutes long - check it out!
