The songs showcase the band’s versatility and ability to touch a chord in each fan through a wide variety of song themes, rhythms and styles, and even recording locations. The album includes breakout songs “Show A Little Skin” - a guitar fueled modern country/rock song, “The Memory” - a more serious and internal reflection tune, as well as “Friends Like These” - an acoustic ‘thank you’ to the fans. This album is the perfect example of The Michael D. Band’s sound and their ability to write incredible lyrics. Their attention to detail is evident in the effort they put into crafting each song and making them unique and still turning out a coherent, extremely polished, and emotionally evocative album.
