Produced by Bob Delevante (3, 5), Reed Easterwood (1, 4, 6, 7), and Milton Mapes

Album Notes:
This album was recorded over the course of a chaotic year, with a revolving cast of performers, back-and-forth between Texas and Nashville. The result is a raw, demo-ish collection of songs that captures the idea of a band being assembled, and sounds being explored with a heavy folk/country influence. The State Line is about physical places, emotional spaces, and the fine line that seperates the two.
