about

On a weekend in July 2008, Toronto band Captain Starr went up to the cottage in Tiny Township on Georgian Bay to unwind. Their Saturday night plans to see a concert in Barrie was cancelled, so they stayed in and thought of something else to do...

What ended up happening was something magical. The band played their songs acoustically for the first time, and recorded these unrehearsed tracks. In about 2 hours, they recorded 9 tracks that they'd never played through before as a three piece acoustic outfit. All songs were recorded live, with only 2 microphones in the room, with no overdubs and no editing.

They went up north to relax and hang out... but they came back with an acoustic album.
