Picking up #60 on the US Americana airplay chart, awarding them a second IASCA Irish Radio Artist nomination, standout reviews in NoDepression.com and Nashville's chief critic Robert Oermann recently stating "The three Duffy brothers have been tantalizing me with their excellent singles for a couple of years. Now they have a crowd-funded full album at last. Its title tune is chock full of harmony vocals, ringing guitars and echoey atmosphere. These guys have vocal, songwriting and production chops in abundance."

Forming the core of First Aid Kit's live band, the London Irish brothers new album was successfully PledgeMusic funded, mixed by Matt Kemp (The Chieftains, Ry Cooder), mastered by Denis Blackham (Elvis Costello), and released through their own artist/indie label.

With additional musical input from uncles Ray & Leo Duffy (mandolin & fiddle), Grand Ole Opry performers, who supported the likes of Don Williams, Tammy Wynette, Charlie Pride & Johnny Cash back in the early 80's, the brothers infuse their own influences Steve Earle, Wilco, Little Feat, Shawn Colvin, The Band, & Emmylou Harris to give them their unique americana, folk-rock style.

Melvin Duffy's pedal steel & slide guitar skills continue to be put to use by many great artists around the world, including David Gilmore, Robbie Williams, The Waterboys, UB40, Squeeze & First Aid Kit.
