Here is what singer/guitarist Carter Lane told The Pier about “The Sound”…
We are excited to finally be releasing the album we have forever wanted to create! It’s been such a pleasurable and unique experience for us here at the Top Shelf camp! Musically we’ve got our hands in everything this time, fresh rock, new reggae, nice pop, a little dubstep for the kids and of course positive lyrics for all! From working in our hometown with Mystic Roots leader cootdog to mixing in Washington D.C. with the legendary Jim Fox, Im not quite sure how the process could have been more epic! The result is THE SOUND and its bound to resonate with the masses! Get ready for some fresh new rock reggae!
Stay tuned for The Pier’s official Album Review of The Sound.
