Great things take time - fortunately, Colin Pepper Halliburton is a patient guy. After receiving an acoustic guitar for his 21st birthday, Halliburton no relation to the multinational corporation - set to authoring an extensive catalog of songs. He enlisted friends Joe Rankin (drums), Ehren Starks (keys) and Paul Winn (upright bass) to fill out the band, which began playing shows last year as <a href="http://www.lawrence.com/bands/roseline/">The Roseline</a>. Matching accomplished musicianship to Halliburton's introspective narratives, the band exhibits a subdued sound in the vein of Neko Case, Ryan Adams and/or Damien Rice. The group unveils its debut full-length "A Wall Behind It" on May 26 at The Jackpot Saloon.
