Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Bridgeport, Connecticut’s own, The Alternate Routes, with their song, “Two of a Kind,”  off their album, Lately, which was released through Alternate Routes Records and Soundwave.  The band began in 2002, and was formed by Tim Warren and Eric Donnelly while in college at Fairfield University.  Warren is the leader singer, and plays both the acoustic and electric guitar, Donnelly plays the electric guitar and does playing vocals, Mike Sembos plays the bass, electric guitar, keys and does backing vocals, and Richard Medek mans the drums.

The album was done in Nashville, and was produced by Teddy Morgan.  It was recorded over six weeks at Barrio East in Nashville, featuring The Alternate Routes and multi-instrumentalist, Carl Broemel, who is a band member of My Morning Jacket.

The band has been on an extensive tour, and will be playing show on May 10, at the Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, in New York City, and then has a show in Purceville, VA, on June 9, at the Franklin Parks Art Center.  Be sure to check out tour dates for further tour information.

These words find their place in the song, “Two of a Kind,”


“When you came downstairs

The room was on fire
And the smoke ran away
But the fire just stayed
And it burned in your eyes
And we both walk
Through sight and through sound
You know you’re welcome to ask me
But you know exactly what it is that I want
We’re two of a kind
Two on the same side

Little by little
Don’t we all break down
And what you don’t fight to keep
Runs away in your sleep
Or just gets lost in the crowd
And the time that we wasted
Keeping the rain off the ground
It’s just the battles we fought
When we were younger at heart
Seem so strange to me now…”
