The band’s frontman, Evan Felker, is a masterful songwriter who can craft memorable melodies and clever wordplay. His voice is expressive and emotive, conveying a range of emotions from heartache to humor.

The band’s latest album, A Long Way from Your Heart, is their most ambitious and accomplished work to date. The album showcases the band’s musical versatility, featuring upbeat rockers, soulful ballads, honky-tonk anthems and acoustic gems. The album also explores some darker themes, such as addiction, divorce and death, reflecting the band’s personal struggles and growth. The album’s standout track, “Pay No Rent”, is a tribute to Felker’s late aunt, who was like a second mother to him. The song is a poignant and beautiful ode to love and loss, with Felker singing “You’re always in my heart / And I’ll pay no rent for you”.
