On the Water is a record that aims to both break your heart and heal your wounds.” 
That’s what the press release says anyway. But I know one thing for certain, the vocals of frontman Samuel T. Herring broke my heart the first time I heard “In The Evening Air”. Earning it a spot on my Best of 2010 last year. Needless to say, I have great expectations for their forthcoming LP, “On the Water”. This is a band you need to know, for sure.
