This is the first Stolen Jars full length album.
Stolen Jars was originally a guitar-based solo-project started by Cody Fitzgerald in the Summer of 2009. Cody Fitzgerald composed and recorded all of the music in his house and then asked his friend Magdalena Bermudez to sing with him on the songs. Magda wrote lyrics and vocal melodies along with Cody, however, she lived in Massachusetts, and most of the recording was done separately and sent through Dropbox. The project grew as Cody became more and more involved in the new songs he was producing. John-Elio Reitman soon joined his company as a third singer. With John, Cody had found the sound he was looking for, but sought a way to translate it live. John lived in New York and would not be able to play shows all of the time, Magda lived in Massachusetts and would be unavailable as well, and it would be impossible for him to play everything he had played on the recordings alone. So, he asked a couple of friends to play live with him and his loop pedal. Jonah Fried (drums), Sam Skinner (guitar), Molly Grund (vocals), and Elena Juliano (vocals) came to his aid and they began playing shows around the NY/NJ area. Now, Cody attends Brown University and is working on new material.
150 handprinted copies of the album were made, but they are now sold out. Sorry!
