Dark Green Bottles is a Chicago Quartet, who have been together for 2 and a half years. Jack Cunningham, John Sabal and Evan Cantor began playing as an acoustic trio in coffee-houses and small bars. When preparing to record the debut CD, 'Waterline', the band decided they needed to add a drummer to the mix. The result was incredible. Kris Meyers, of Umphree's McGee, sat in on drums for the recording sessions. The recording of the album took six days. Each player, basically, completed their parts for the album in one day. For the recording, they chose to work with Blaise Barton, who has worked with Liz Phair, Ike Reilly, Pedal Steel Transmission, and Bob Dylan. The album was released in the spring of 2003. 'Waterline' showcases Dark Green Bottles' incredible musicianship and songwriting. The band has begun to earn a following based on the strength of their live performances and their songwriting. Audiences are delighted by Cunningham's soaring vocals, Sabal's beautiful lead guitar work, Cantor's smooth, melodic bass playing, the precision and power of new drummer, Steve Osterman, and, of course...the songs. The band, as it is now, haven't played together very long, but you wouldn't know it if you heard them.
