This is the first song recorded by the band and once we started we knew we had something great together. The intro line of electric guitar coupled with a sax is the real “catch” of the song. In this, as in many other songs of ours, we played with dynamics which resembles our live presence. One example of this is immediately after the rough and crazy intro all the instruments vanish and we change to a simple trio of vocals, acoustic guitar, and percussion.
This song features Anna Calderini singing an improvised section, Manuel Magrini as he creates a latinized solo, and Augusto Castriota on his sax. “Met Your Match” has been featured on Radio Uno as a single and has received over 100,000 votes on the program “Demo.”

While noticing how humans work you will find that we are constantly adjusting our attitude to how things will look like in the future, and yet noone claims to be able to read the future. After spending a week on a beach in Abruzzo, Italy, Chase realized his emotions were taking over him, he couldn't let himself be happy. "I always thought I needed a reason to be happy, and thats when I realized that is not true happiness. I hope this song will remind me to be Happy Anyway, and not driven by my emotions, as is so common among us."
Lyrics "One step forward is two steps behind, but I won't let that control my life, I'm gonna be happy anyway im gonna appreciate the space in between where I am and where I wanna be."

An artist has to build his vision out of thin-air, and it's likely that things won't fly as planned. We strive to use the ups and downs of life and to recognize that every artist needs to starve a while or they won't have anything worth saying anyway. This song is the story that the band is still living through, we haven't reached the end yet, as you may know, but there is beauty in the bridge. The Bar-Code Artwork was made by NickPawson.
Lyrics "I thought I would be making it loud, I thought I'd be famous by now, I thought I would make my own sounds instead to earth I'm still bound, cause I'm an artist who's starving now."

Written and recorded in the space of 2 months in the summer of 2012, “Enough Of Me” is about what happens when one half of a relationship changes and the other half remains the same. Rome's un-shakable marble of ancient times alongside buildings of all other periods reflects the love drama which many couples go through. The band took this song and made it their own while keeping the initial songwriter style intact. Male and female vocals intertwine around the chorus in this meloncholic yet sweet love song.

"Town Of The Soul" is our mystical and spiritual masterpiece. It is the only song not written by Chase Bell, instead it was written by Vincent Verderosa. Filmactic, dramatic, soothing, and powerful, this song has real meaning behind it, we would love for you to hear it. The photo is of Castelluccio, a small town only a few miles away from Ten People Town Studio where the album was recorded.
Lyrics, "He might say its like a giant ocean embracing every drop of rain, or like a fish searching for water as he swims his life in vain."
