Chadburn, a veteran of the Vermont and northern New England music scene for over 20 years, leads the five-piece band. The Earthbound Spirits include Travis Leblanc on drums, Chris Doncaster on bass, Rudy Dauth as a multi-instrumentalist, and Mike Fried on keyboards.

For this project, the band added a horn section featuring Chris Peterman, Avery Cooper, and Connor Young, who contribute to two tracks: “Ain’t That True” and “Can’t Get Through.”

The album showcases the band’s expanding musical range, offering a mix of styles from retro-R&B to Americana and rock. Tracks include the blue-eyed soul number “Something Out of Nothing” and the rock-oriented “Some Kind of Revolution.”
