WITNESS was recorded live at the beautiful-sounding Columbia City Theater in Seattle in June of 2017 as a part of the SeaProg Festival. It is enormously gratifying, after over ten years of performing as a band, to finally have a high-quality rendering of the live JOTC. It is a different animal from our studio offerings--different feel, different energy, often radically different arrangements. We put a ton of work into this show in particular--the last time the original quintet of Damon Waitkus, Emily Packard, Kate McLoughlin, Jason Hoopes, and Jordan Glenn performed together--re-imagining material from our entire tenure together and weaving it into a continuous, stand-alone set.

Thanks to Dennis Rea, John Reagan, Jon Davis, and the Columbia City Theater for making this happen.

Recording engineer: Maurice Jones Jr.

Mixed and mastered by Damon Waitkus.

For Jesse, who was with us then, and listening.

JACK O' THE CLOCK "presents a fine lesson on what it means to write songs that are at once approachable and human while simultaneously being incredibly profound in terms of timbre, depth of emotion, and harmonic complexity," Progulator.
