March 12, 2009|By SAM SESSA

Hometown: Baltimore

Members: Peter Wile, vocals, guitar and harmonica; Gena Smith, guitar, vocals and pedal steel; Corey Zook, guitar; Lance Smith, drums; Nick Jewett, bass

Founded : 2007

Style : rock/Americana

Influenced by : Bob Dylan, the blues, Hank Williams

Notable: Tomorrow, the band will officially release its first full-length album, Hearts, Roads and Tears. Instead of building a song layer by layer, band members set up and recorded live in studio.

Quotable : "We're a live band, so we figured we'd play them live," Zook said. "We had a wealth of songs because [Wile] writes all the time. It was hard to choose some songs, but we just went in there and played the songs we wanted to."
