The result of the collision was “Sessions,” a six-song album written by Chris Peters and assembled by Kurt Ekstrom, Dave Whalley, and Jason Lane. The Album was released, appropriately enough, in October of 1999. The next few years saw the band doing what all bands need to do to survive; playing anywhere, anytime. From Portland, Maine to Boston, MA, and from the University of NH to Vermont Law School and Columbia University in NY, the band was working to get their music to new audiences.
They’d be playing coffee shops and bars one week, and opening for National Acts the next. Concord radio station WJYY picked up on the band’s hard work and promoted October Sons’ second album, “Paint the Town October” (May, 2001). Around this time, October Sons formed a relationship with Mojo Studio, an internationally distributed radio program. The band’s recordings can be heard on Mojo’s first compilation CD, “PROOF”, and on the first Mojo Studio Christmas album, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Additionally, one of Chris Peters’ solo recordings can be heard on “Do You Hear What I Hear, Too?” Read more on Last.fm.
