about

This is the duo's 2013 release aptly titled The World Is My Country, for their indie Off the Beaten Track Recordings label.  The name of the album comes from the famous quote by American revolutionary Thomas Paine: “The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren and to do good is my religion.”

"The new album represents both a personal and musical rebirth, coming after a separation that found us living down the road from one another, while continuing to perform together as best friends. New songs like the heartland rocker “Always Been You” and the acoustic ballad “Where Did We Go Wrong” address the ups and downs of a relationship that is now renewed and more vital than ever- a musical couples therapy."
 

Produced and recorded in their home studio on Pro Tools Digi002, The World Is My Country offers a wide range of styles, from the somber cello which marks the moody, intense, cinematic emo-rock of “Love’s the Only Thing” to the slinky, bass and drums R&B feel of “I’m Calling In,” with its shimmering pop chorus, a tale of a soul-searching journey through darkness only to discover the answers were within the whole time.

The live acoustic “One,” about “courage and self-empowerment,” was inspired by the 13-year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai who was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for supporting girls education, while the country ballad “One More Day,” written after 9/11, is a reminder of life’s fragility and the urge to experience it to the fullest.  Roman shows off his virtuosity on the jazzy, cinematic “My Heart” and the dreamy, trance-like “Firedance,” while Cilette’s stunning cover of John Prine’s “Angel from Montgomery” was inspired by Meryl Streep’s character in the movie, The Bridges of Madison County, and her difficult life decisions.
