Thanks to everyone that came out to Slowtrain for the release show, we all had a great time. It's always good to see so many friends in one place. I hope we can do it again soon.
kind words from Salt Lake City Weekly:
"Begin is the debut album by The American Shakes, a side-project of sorts for Band of Annuals’ Brent Dreiling, who wrote the vast majority of the 11 nuggets of gorgeous folk-rock found here. Although, I’m not sure you can call it a side-project when so many familiar faces took part in its birth, from a passel of Dreilings’ fellow Annuals to David Williams and Casey Prestwood. Regardless, these songs written throughout 2009 while Dreiling was spending “way more time in Salt Lake City than I had been used to,” and recorded through 2010 are finally seeing the light of day, and they were well worth the wait."
