Written, played, and recorded by Ed Shuttleworth at his Owl Nest Studio in Granville, Ohio, with assistance from Joe Nelson, David Chatterton, and Kirk Richard Smith. The discerning listener may hear some Cheap Trick, Guided By Voices, and other midwest touchstones — and there’s nothing wrong with that kind of tasty, audio-flavor combination. So, have at it, rock and rollers.

Songwriter, guitar-slinger, and crooner Ed Shuttleworth is joined by a new line-up of pals from Cincinnati’s The Ready Stance — Wesley Pence (guitar, vox), Brian Kitzmiller (drums), and Randy Cheek (bass, vox) — and the fellas bring the melodic but muscular indie-rock, big time. New songs, new band name. Long live Van Echo.
