Hardworker - The Awful Rowing EP - 2015



Sus Long left Oakland, CA in 2013 (and duo Kit Carson, a collaboration with Ian James Walters) to move to Durham. That same year, she met bass and banjo player Michael Conner and the two started meeting up to play Ramones covers. The friends kept making friends with musical friends and this bluesy folk band has grown to include guitarist Danny Nowell, singer Alex Treyz, and drummer Dave Berka.


This is the first EP from Sus Long and Hardworker. It's got a lot of words and notes, but it turns out that an album is mostly made out of dazzling goodwill and cheering friends and courageous bandmates and the kindness of strange, strange, strangers.
