The Saving My Sanity CD was produced, arranged, engineered, and mixed by Brian Maes, owner of Briola records. He is a former member of the Billboard charting RTZ and songwriter of the top 20 Billboard hit, When Your Love Comes Back Around. He opened for Aerosmith and for U2, and he toured around the world with Peter Wolf: He is currently working on an album for Ernie and the Automatics.
"My Way" was released in 2011, and combines the entire band's songwriting capabilities. The hit song "Escape" off of the album has received multiple awards, including the Limelight Music Awards song of the year 2011, as well as the best song at the Children's Hospital Boston Battle of the Bands.
Currently, the band is in the process of recording a new album, set to be released this fall.
