"GunStreetRadio's "A Fine Line Between" (2005)"

"It's been a while since I've enjoyed listening to a new recording as much as I did this one.
Great songwriting & superb musicianship make Gun Street Radio's latest CD, "A Fine Line Between," a fine piece of work. I love it."

"Ben Krieger, singer/songwriter"

"If you're going to be in anybody's presence for over an hour, you'd better find them likeable. Krieger understands this instinctively -- or perhaps he doesn't need to. At any rate, he's an sympathetic writer, and manages to animate his characters with warmth, frailty, and humanity. Heartbreak, romantic failure, feelings of inadequacy...Krieger's narrators all seem to be in the midst of breaking up, getting left behind, being spurned. They maintain tremendous humanity throughout, though, taking their blows with dignity. The stories play out against a New York City backdrop of bars, record shops, streets, subways and apartments. But these narrators aren't partygoers or barflies -- they're just Manhattan citizens, hoping that a few extra inches might make all the difference...I recommend that everybody in Asbury Park extend honorary membership in the Jersey Shore scene to Ben Krieger."
--Tris McCall - Jersey Independent Music

Bio

"It is great to see a band playing straight ahead rock and roll again" is a quote often heard to describe GunStreetRadio's potent live show. But the group also has a melodic side that shines through in their meaningful lyrics and three part vocal harmonies. Dedication, friendship and simply having fun while creating memorable music, this is why GunStreetRadio exists.

In the Spring of 2004, having won over fans up and down the East Coast, GunStreetRadio decided that it was time to give people a collection of songs that could be blast out of car windows. From May - September, Martin, Ben and April stepped into the studio with founding member Jarrod Ruby on drums and pounded out 40 minutes of heartfelt songs wrapped in a blanket of blistering rock'n'roll. The resulting debut release, "A Fine Line Between", is finally done. With second guitarist Jon Lundbom on board, GunStreetRadio is off and rocking.
