A little over a year and a half ago, songwriter/composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock stripped down a small Nashville row house to build a custom studio. In this space, and together with friend and drummer/producer Dabney Morris, they would record and eventually form a five-piece band around their debut album “Youth.” Initially shared digitally a little over a year ago, the album will now see a wide release through Mom+Pop on December 10th, 2013 as infectious debut single “Thunder Clatter” sits in rotation on SiriusXM’s AltNation.
