|Rockwell Church's fifth album harnesses the energy and spirit of Rockwell Church in their moment. It represents their most accomplished and inspiring work to date - the album broaches new songwriting and arrangement frontiers for the duo while boasting trademark Rockwell Church melodies, harmonies, and diverse instrumentation.
Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, John Mayer) plays drums on the album, giving all the songs a solid backbone. Then Nathan and Joti worked their magic with Doug Derryberry to lay down a number of fan favorites and a few brand new tracks. Nathan's guitar, lyrics, and melodies continue to impress fans while Joti's lead guitar, backing vocals, and much more bring Nathan's song writing to the next level. Antidote is also the first Rockwell Church album to feature a string section, with arrangements by Joti and Doug.
Songs like "Kool-Aid Man" and "Chemical" visit themes of love and loss. "Second Door" relives an encounter with domestic abuse. "Star Over South Africa" is a solemn ode to an acquaintance killed in the post-apartheid violence before Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Antidote is passionate and moving throughout, at times joyous, at others mournful. It is the elegant signature of a band that has arrived.

|Before releasing this album in '00, Nathan and Joti warned fans that the coming album would
sound a little different than its predecessors. Two former members of the band Agents of
Good Roots played drums and bass, helping give Superego its unique sound. But the real addition on this one: the electric guitar.|
On this album, Nathan and Joti take their songwriting to new places and their maturing musical style impresses their long time fans. Songs range from the upbeat and insouciant "You're So Cool" to the heartfelt prose of "Lonely", plus everything in between.

Best Time of the Year
|Gong is a limited edition, all-acoustic, six song EP recorded in 1998. With a huge number of new tunes and some often-requested old favorites, they couldn't resist getting back in the recording studio. So they called their good friend and top-notch producer John Alagia, moved an entire professional recording studio into Nathan's house, and got to work. The result of the week's worth of fun and hard work is Warm Up The Gong. |
Nathan and Joti rock out on these recordings. Their unique songwriting and playing styles are highlighted on this album, as the acoustic guitar takes the spotlight even more than usual. "Hobo Dog", the last track sung by Joti, is a crowd favorite at live shows for Joti's impressive guitar licks. "She Hung the Moon", another live favorite, highlights Nathan's talent as a songwriter with its intricate lyrics and bold, sweeping melody.

|Nathan and Joti follow up Inches with their second album: Through the Fall. This album starts strong from the first note of "Better Days" and it keeps listeners captivated and singing along on every tune.|
Through the Fall is an irresistible portrait of the band, a must for every cd collection!
It was also released on Compass Records and thus has two different covers, but the music remained the same.

|Nathan and Joti's debut release in 1995. The songs on this album have an essence of youth but it's easy to hear Rockwell Church's style beginning to form. This album is more raw than those that come after it but the songs are just as strong.|
New fans and old should get this and hear how Rockwell Church sounded in the early days.
