What started off as an experiment between Drew Montgomery and Marcus Ledbetter to write and record some songs back and forth turned into what was potentially a "solo" record for Drew. After watching this thing evolve into something more it was decided that this was more than just a solo record. Drew had started a band back in 2013 called Kick. Snare. Crash. that had played a few shows, but it never really got off the ground, so this is the new version of Kick. Snare. Crash. Welcome to Vol. 1 of a series of EP's that are in the works.
All of these songs were written and recorded in the home studios of Drew and Marcus. "We wanted to make this a very organic and 'grass-roots' type of record. It sounds like a record we did ourselves, without any big studio equipment. We used what we had, and picked up a few things along the way to improve our capabilities, but wanted to make sure it maintained its endearing, just two dudes making a record quality."
