Fake It Happy
Toast, Fake it Happy "If you like the music, you'll like us", says Toast bass player, Shaun Courbat. And that in fact is the truth. The debut album from Toast is a blend of all the personalities and musical influences of the 5 members of the Cedar Falls, Iowa based band. From the philosophical musings of the lyrics penned by guitarist and singer Brooks Martin, to the straight forward style of singer and guitarist Craig Larsen, this album takes you on a ride through the band's openly-shared collective unconscious. Then add Jeremiah Longnecker's vocals and keys and you have a rare find these days, a rock band w/ 3 legitimate lead singers. Working w/ Gold Record producer, Tom Tatman at Catamount Recording in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Toast has created a complete album. Each track can stand on it's own, but Fake it Happy is intended to be listened to in it's entirety. There's a story the band has to tell, and it touches on the universal mythologies known to one and all. Toast asks you to go on a ride w/ them and see which golden thread reveals it's self to you.
