" ... Singled out by the San Francisco Herald as "the next big thing outta the San Francisco Bay Area," this extraordinary quartet sold ten thousand copies of its first album with no promotion, won exposure through promoting episodes of Fox's The OC, secured a Gibson endorsement, and earned plaudits in Amplifier Magazine and on billboard.com, garageband.com, starpolish.com, and loudenergy.com -- all without a label backing them up ..."
