After enjoying a feast and absorbing the elemental surroundings, AE3 and fans made their way inside the humble barn and entered a room that felt sanctified. The intimate space allowed the newly bonded group to gather in tightly for a prodigious experience. Alan Evans, Danny Mayer, and Beau Sasser took their positions, and the recording began without the ability or desire to stop. Two hours later, the final notes rang out to a symphony of cymbals and it was realized that this was music in its purest sense. “No overdubs, no second chances – just a moment captured in time,” as summed up by guitarist Danny Mayer.
This is music for the music lover. What was left behind is not just notes to a beat, but a perfect balance struck without compromise – the energy of a live show and the sound quality of a recording. Whether you argue they took the concert to the studio or the studio to the concert, one thing can be agreed upon: this was the way music was meant to be heard, an album as live as it could ever be…so live you can feel it.
