“Memory believes before knowing remembers. Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders. Knows remembers believes a corridor in a big long garbled cold echoing building of dark red brick sootbleakened by more chimneys than its own, set in a grassless cinderstrewnpacked compound surrounded by smoking factory purlieus and enclosed by a ten foot steel-and-wire fence like a penitentary or a zoo, where in random erratic surges, with sparrowlike childtrebling, orphans in identical and uniform blue denium in and out of remembering but in knowing constant as the bleak walls, the bleak windows where in rain soot from the yearly adjacenting chimneys streaked like black tears.” – bio

Tim Pritchard and The Boxcar Suite, a group that consists of studied and accomplished musicians who’ve long been staples of the Dayton, Ohio, musical landscape, play thoughtful rock ‘n’ roll. Their songs are designed to enlighten as well as entertain, and deliver on a self-imposed band/fan contract that positive vibes are paramount and experimentation and musicianship will exceed even the highest listener expectations.

On their latest effort, Across The Vast & Deep, the band allows their power-pop, guitar-centric sensibilities to meander through a variety of genres and inspirations, from psychedelia to country and from folk to glam. Although the band isn’t reinventing the wheel, it is clear the group is covering some new ground. (magazine review>
