Love it!


This is a great EP and follow up to William Tell's first album "You Can Hold Me Down." He is a skilled songwriter with a wonderful voice. 'Break' is an amazing song! Can't get enough of this EP



This is an excellent EP by an artist who is as loyal to his roots as he is willing to experiment with his sound. While I really liked his first solo effort (You Can Hold Me Down), I love this collection of songs. The difference here is that William Tell has really started to come into his own as a songwriter.

The EP opens on a very promising note with "Break" and the rest of the songs don't disappoint. The puns and wit found in "Gone Gone Gone" make it perhaps the most memorable song, though "Hauling Oats" comes in a very close second just because it's so fun.

Tell avoids feeling too contrived or overproduced, and instead delivers a listening experience as honest and real as we all wish we could be.

Foot tapping and Heart Felt


William Tell is not only a talent musician, he loves his fans! So, supporting him on this album is just a little way of saying... WILLIAM TELL KEEP WRITING MUSIC!!! My favorite song on this album is "Break." It's a beautiful love song that describes the beginning of a new romance. It's raw and lays everything out on the table.

About William Tell

Singer/songwriter/guitarist William Tell was born and raised in southern California. His family had an interest in gospel music, and his father, a minister, taught him to play guitar. At college, he studied music business while writing songs and playing guitar. He joined the Orange County alt-rock band Something Corporate in 2001. In October of that year, the group released its debut EP, Audioboxer, on the Drive-Thru label, followed by their major-label debut album, Leaving Through the Window, on MCA in May 2002; the disc reached number 101 in the Billboard 200. Their second album, North, debuted at number 24 after its release in October 2003. Something Corporate was primarily a vehicle for lead singer/pianist Andrew McMahon, who took nearly all the songwriting credits, with Tell restricted to a subsidiary role, playing guitar and providing background vocals. He left the group amicably to go solo in early 2004. His first solo release was the song "Just for You," which he co-wrote with Mike Greene, and which appeared on the soundtrack to the film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants in May 2005. On March 13, 2007, New Door Records, an imprint of Universal Music, released his debut solo album, You Can Hold Me Down. ~ William Ruhlmann
