Having been together for a few years, Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown have been on the road, gaining fans along the way with their epic live shows. “We’re definitely a live band,” they said. “We go out and make fans on the road, and so we’ve been touring for a few years without a full-length album, and so now that we finally have an album we’re seeing people coming to shows singing along -– like we stop playing and they’re singing. And so it’s really cool to kind of experience that.”

Speaking of finally having a full-length album, one aspect that was important to them was creating a real piece of music, auto-tune free. “We went in and we tracked it completely live in 13 days to two-inch tape,” they said. “There’s no autotune. It’s just a band with their instruments and their voices. That’s how all of our favorite records were made so we wanted to kind of follow that path.”
