    Hey Everyone,

    For those of you don't know. I spent this past summer recording my debut EP under the name The Friendswemake

    The EP was produced and engineered by Ed Rose (Motion City Soundtrack, The Get Up Kids, etc.) at Blacklodge Studios in Eudora, Kansas.

    I got to work with some of my favorite artists of all time including including Ben Kweller, Patrick Carrie (Limbeck) and Ryan Pope (The Get Up Kids, Koufax).

    For us gear heads, you might like to know that 90% of the guitar tracks are a fender Nocaster or MIJ Jazzmaster through a Swart Atomic Space Tone.

    Other amps used were a 60's Alamo head, and a 1968 Super Reverb.

    The entire EP is up for stream this week only and the EP is available for download on AmazonMP3 or for order at www.thefriendswemake.bigcartel.com

    Please let me know what you think and help a fellow gearpager out by buying the cd if you like the music.

    Please comment! I love reading what people think.

    I checked out your website and listened to your EP - I really enjoyed it a lot!

    I just bought the MP3 downloads for it on Amazon - good job!

    Remember us little people when you become a big rock star! :)
