Exquisite set of cover songs by Nashville-based Sunshine Pop band, “The Explorers Club”.
Ten-song-set is chock full of hits, misses, and other delights from the 1960s.
The album features guest vocals by former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, and Drive-By Truckers member, Jay Gonzalez.
Three previous albums: “Freedom Wind” (2008), “Grand Hotel” (2012) and “Together” (2016), and of course their “self-titled” album (2020) which is being released around the same time as “To Sing And Be Born Again”
The brainchild of Charleston, SC native Jason Brewer, the only constant “member” of The Explorers Club over the band’s lifespan
Brewer re-unites with Freedom Wind and Grand Hotel producer, Matt Goldman (Copeland, Underoath, Smalltown Poets, etc)
New contributors to this set include Shane Tutmarc (Dolour, Sean Nelson,) Page and Gonzalez, as well as vocals from former Explorers Club member Wally Reddington and past contributor Brian Langan, Brewer, Tutmarc, and Goldman recorded most of the album in Nashville, at Columbia’s legendary Studio A. Additional work was done at Gem City Studios on the Tennessee/Kentucky border.
