With the band’s recent album "Dream Believer" in 2021 one can catch a glimpse of the great songwriting along with a familiar southern-fried boogie sound which has captured national radio attention and press accolades. Most Notably, the new album is supported with impressive star power, including grammy-nominated Scott Sharrard on slide guitar (Gregg Allman Band) Eric Finland on Keys ( Jaimoe’s Jazzy Band), and background vocals from Joe Blanton (Bluefields, Dan Baird of Georgia Satellites Fame) to pack a powerful southern soul punch. The band is into the "rock 'em until they drop" attitude while holding on to ride the Americana vibe, then peel off onto an ass stomping riff and tie it all together without a hint of pretense.
