The Alternate Routes have never been afraid to work hard and take risks during their turbulent journey. Based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, they are five talented young musicians who's strong work ethic both in the studio and on the road have led to a solid fan base, airplay on an influential Boston radio station and now, a label deal with Vanguard Records. Good and Reckless and True, produced by Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, John Hiatt), is a collection of eleven songs born out of pain, faith, personal tragedy, passion, humor and desperation. From the haunting first track, 'Ordinary' to the straightforward driving rock tune 'Aftermath' to the gorgeous tone of the first single 'Time Is A Runaway', the CD is a cooperative statement that tells a story with engaging lyrics, melodic themes and a rhythm section that complements each of the various moods.
