    Our Latest and Greatest. Nine songs written over the past 3 years.

    “...the nine tracks on Silver Lining cohere organically while donning their cap at different regional influences, calling to mind everything from voluptuous Strangers Almanac-Whiskeytown to 6-String Drag spit-and-grit” Charlotte Viewpoint

    “…a classic country-rock effort built on lonesome pedal steel, earnest delivery, shuffles and waltzes with complementary guitar picking that adds color and texture with echoes of Drive-By Truckers, Ryan Adams, and Fleetwood Mac.” Courtney Devores, Charlotte Observer

    “Their latest is a collection of toe-tapping, foot stomping twang that will have any listener bobbing their head midway through the chorus. Their ability to blend each individual style – never letting one outshine the other – is alive and well…” Kelli Raulerson,

    “Pullman Strike is a sextet bringing you a wonderful mash up of indie, stoner rock and Americana. Their latest album features heartfelt love songs alongside gut-wrenching melodies about loss and loneliness” Jenny Lou Bennett, Shutter 16

I wish you could see things differently
you're just like our father, your mind's always on yourself
think about someone else.

he gave you what you need
and a big ole house
and left me wondering how I drove him away
at such a young age

I always knew you'd follow in his foot steps
with a suit and tie trading money for lies

An illegitimate kid by a poor young girl
who grew up and showed me the world
said "watch out for those like your father"

He erased all the legal proof to hide his sin from the world
to keep that government job from slipping away, he'll do whatever it takes

At least my mother taught me things a father should have,
because I'm too much of a man to bring his sin to the light of day.

We're brothers, you see.
But we're not the same.
You were prized and chosen, I was cast away

But I got all I need, I don't need yours or his sympathy
I make an honest living without that government money

So tell daddy when you see him that it's a loosely held name
that I sleep just fine leading a true mans life
oh yea, i sleep just fine leading a true mans life
