Wait For It EP (Lockdown, Wait For It, Every Single Day, I've Been Down, You and Me) (May 2018) -  For this EP, the band really honed in on creating succinct songs that tell a story.  Inspired by personal experiences of the last few years,  the songs on “Wait For It” speak to making sudden life changes for the better, overcoming individual setbacks, not being too critical of yourself, and just enjoying life by not taking any days for granted.  We felt like our listeners could relate the lyrics to their own personal experiences, and by adding our positive musical vibes, uplift our fans.  We hope you enjoy…crank up, roll down the windows, and rock out! 

The Beach EP (The Beach, Rest Easy, You're All Heart, Happy Girl)  (March 2016) -We spent a lot of time playing at the coast the last 4 years.  The salt air vibe and easy going lifestyle inspired 4 songs to capture the band's love of the beach, life, family, and friends.  The third time was a charm at Thread Audio as we spent over a year perfecting what we think is our best music to date.  We are so proud of this EP and thankful we have the best fans to share it with!!

Come Along EP (Bones Are There, Superstar, Heartbreaker, Come Along) (May 2014) -  Since we loved the sound of the first EP, we tried to capture the same vibe and David and Michael at Thread Audio rocked it!! The band couldn't have asked for a better was magical!!! The EP is available at all upcoming shows or you can order at CD Baby to have delivered right to your door! 

Matty Begs EP (Riverbend, Good Mixture, Only the Good Notes, Energy) (February 2013) -  In 2012 we headed into Thread Audio in Raleigh, NC to record our first EP.  The band set up and recorded four live tracks on a cold snowy Saturday.  We decided to record live in order to capture who we are...a live band!  The results are a feel-good, raw and energetic EP that will keep your head bobbing and feet moving.  Listen and download the Matty Begs EP for free on our website.
