Railroad Earth - Black Bear Sessions

Every once in a rare while, a group of musicians will come together and everything just clicks instantly, from the first note to the final crescendo. Railroad Earth is one of those bands. Made up of some of the best players from other popular Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey bands, these guys had known of each other and played the same circuit for several years before finally falling together. Lead singer / guitarist Todd Sheaffer was a founding member, front man and primary songwriter for RCA Records' band From Good Homes. Tim Carbone and Andy Goessling were both founding members of underground faves The Blue Sparks from Hell, who toured the Eastern Seaboard for years to packed houses. John Skehan played, toured and recorded with a number of bluegrass and rock bands over the past few years. Our resident New Yorker, Carey Harmon played drums and percussion with the regional touring band The Hour, and Dave Von Dollen, our 22 year old wunderkind upright bass player, was tapped right out of the New School where he was studying jazz. It took only one rehearsal with the full band for Railroad Earth to realize they had touched upon something special, so they immediately began writing songs and experimenting with sound textures. After just a few weeks, they decided to book a couple of days in a local recording studio and lay down a few songs. The idea was to capture a live feel in the studio, with all the jams intact. So everything was recorded live with no overdubs...even the lead vocals. Only backing vocals were overdubbed later. The result was a startlingly original sounding collection of songs that truly crackle with energy.
