Influence of the band range from U2 and Matchbox 20 to Snow Patrol and Foo Fighters. Personally, I think they remind me a little of the Welsh band Stereophonics, Trent has that husky Rock voice at times and the melodies and backing match up brilliantly that could please many genres. Lyrics and music that can evoke a little Soul, Blues, Pop and Rock, I'm surprised I hadn't heard them before in little old England, they are a really great band with some stunning tunes.
The first album "Degrees Of Falling" was finally released in 2002. After realising they didn't have enough money they requested help from the fans who duly helped them fund the disc. The Grunge Rock influences were here but also the experimental artistry of the band was showing itself even on this debut set. "Lost And Found" for instance has an R.E.M feel to it, a lilting ballad until a couple of minutes in then a complete rock out! "Painted Words" is a gorgeous ballad with signs of Bob Dylan and Tom Petty while "Paper Bag" and "Joker" could be Pearl Jam at their peak. "Restless" on the other hand, is a Country tinged sweet ballad complete with slide guitars. A genre-breaking taste of things to come.
