The independent release was well received and the press took notice that this initial offering "augurs great things for the future" (Gina Morris, Evolution of Media). Soon after the release of Good Morning Radio, the band was introduced to piano popster, Geoff Smith, whom they invited to sit in for a number of Nashville shows. The more fleshed out sound worked so well that the band invited him to join them in the recording of their debut full-length album, The Ballad of Codaphonic. For this record, the band returned to the same team that helped them record the EP, local engineers/friends Mike Paragone and David Axelrod. Supplimented by horns, strings and even steel guitar, the new album successfully expands the band's sound while maintaining their unique voice as showcased on the first EP.
From the opening two minute rocker "Never Slows Down" to the album closing ballad, "Beethoven's Birthday," The Ballad of Codaphonic delivers a finely tuned collection of upbeat and honest pop songs. The Ballad of Codaphonic was released January 15, 2008 on Silent Uproar Records. Read more on Last.fm.
