About

What is happening here?

Look around you and tell me what you see.  What do you hear?  Whats going on?  What's missing?

A NEW Boxcar album!

We are trying to fix that problem.  Its been a while, and the Boxcars are scratching and clawing at the studio door trying to get in.  We need your help.

This go around, we have asked for guidance from one of the coolest cats in the game.  John Evans has signed on to produce this latest collection of songs. 

We make no promises on what you will hear.  The creativity contained in this one room might be too much to hold.  Its going to be funky, its going to be cool.  Its gonna be pure Americana and its gonna be folk.  Its gonna be down-home goodness with a Boxcar twist.  It will be Rock and Roll!  Its gonna keep you warm at night right before it gives you nightmares.  There is no agenda.  Our only goal is to make an album that our fans have come to expect from us.  The best songs will be chosen and the final collection will be a product that is sure to satisfy even the strictest critics.

We can't stress enough how excited we are to work with John Evans on this project.  If you've liked the Boxcars in the past, imagine what John Evans can do when he gets his hands on us!  The guy knows cool and creative music.  He knows how to capture the sound and feelings of a song...and then flip it on its head.  

This is going to be a killer collection of songs.  We are already hard at work pouring our hearts, souls, emotions, joys, pain, and experiences into the writing and rehearsing of this album.  Its going to be a great album. 

Don't call it a comeback!  We've been here the whole time.  Its finally time for the Boxcars to get back in the studio and show you whats been happening the last 2 years.  Its time!

This go around, the cast has changed slightly.  This record will feature Ben Morris on guitar (and possibly mando, uke, guitjo, elect,, etc.).  Chris Nichols will be back on bass.  Bucky Bachmeyer will be on the drums and percussion.  Eric Fisher will be featured on the keys, piano, and organ.  Laura Bianco will step in and provide violin on this album.  The newest change is going to be the vocals.  You can expect a mix of harmonies, lead vocal changes, and overall harmonious sound on this album.  Its going to be a little bit of a change from Boxcars past.  In a good way, in a good way!

This campaign is the first step.  Everything that comes after is going to be pure magic.  It all starts here. 

Risks and challenges

We have hit the only main restriction to this project. That is financially getting the recording done. Thankfully, the Boxcars have attracted the most caring and understanding group of people. They aren't fans to us, they are friends. Should a few minor set-backs occur, I know that Boxcar fans will rest easy because they know that we will get it right. We have proven numerous times that we do what we say. If we start out to make a record...we are going to make a record. We mean business!
