Pittsburgh, PA-based singer-songwriter Brendan Miller sent a song to Zach Quinn (Pears, Bandaid Brigade) on Instagram and Zach immediately sent it to One Week Records‘ Joey Cape. Joey expressed interest for a One Week release and Brendan started writing the album, sending him songs as they came. Given the restrictions with COVID, Brendan recorded this entire album himself from his laptop, outside his car on his driveway, during the middle of winter 2021. Joey Cape mastered the record.
“‘Funerals for young people were unfortunately becoming a common occurrence in my hometown during my last few months there. I thought that moving across the country might ease the blow and remove me from the obsession that I’d be next. Selfishly, it helped me but the loss continued. The Good Ones is a song for the friends I can no longer call.’- Brendan Miller
