"...A Saturday night, hundreds of miles from home, a packed audience, in the prime of life: If you play music, this is as good as it ever gets." -Peter Blackstock,

Band of Annuals has done its work, releasing The Wharehouse EP (2006), Repondez (2005) and Let Me Live (2007) with producer Scott Wiley (Ryan Adams, Elliot Smith). The latter two having been recently re-released on independent Salt Lake City label Kilby Records.

The cry of a pedal-steel, vocal harmonies reminiscent of past classics, heartfelt lyrics, musical chemistry that can only come with time...sounding both familiar and new, polished and raw, Band of Annuals
"...prove to be standout students of the gospel of grace and space."
