Five guys, buddies from ways back, get together to jam around some ideas songwriter Keith Bailey had. He had began writing about the what the band members were going through- divorce, personal struggles, being broke, in a word.. baggage. Through that honesty came chemistry. That chemistry turned five guys in a room to brothers united by passion. Passion to have a few hours a week to forget about dead end jobs, forget about debt and the day to day struggles, and at least have a break from heartache pain. Rehearsals reflected it. Shows reflected it. And.. attendance reflected it. They rubbed they're nickels together and booked some time in an Athens studio to record the songs. What sits on your desk is the result.

We all got baggage, it's in our hearts, beneath our skin, under our eyes, in our past, and will be with us until we part this world. Bailey learned to tap into his and write about it. Here's 8 songs that are a look inside the lives of five guys who'll I'll bet are a bit like you & I. The albums called Better Left There, you can fill in the rest.

For fans of Elvis Costello, the jam & billy bragg.
