Album Notes
From Albuquerque, New Mexico USA

After GoMotorCar disbanded in 2004, bassist Roger Apodaca decided to record some songs as a side project. Throughout much of 2004 he recorded his music on his home computer, inviting musicians to lend an ear and take a bit of direction while adding their respective personalities to the individual tracks they would lay down. What started out as a few songs soon grew into an entire album. The project was dubbed Black Tie, and the album was titled "At Dawn". The 10 song disc features Apodaca performing much of the instrumentation but also includes performances by Ryan Martino (BellyAchers), Dagmar Andrews (GoMotorCar, Skumbaag), Eric Reynolds (Los Brownspots), Paul Newcomb (Los Brownspots), Leonard Apodaca (Scenester, GoMotorCar), Audrey Lee, and Deborah Maldonado. Each musician adds their own personal element to the already atmospheric quality of the songs and the end result is an album that is melodic, haunting, and beautiful at the same time. Fans of GoMotorCar's album True Tonight should explore Black Tie as it is a nice follow up to that landmark album.

"At Dawn" received excellent feedback and the only obstacle Apodaca had was to organize a band to perform the music live. Apodaca enlisted the help of Ryan Martino on guitar, Eric Reynolds on bass, Paul Newcomb on cello, and Ryan Anthony on drums to play for the successful CD release party, held at Atomic Cantina in Albuquerque, New Mexico in September 2005. The performance was so well received that the five piece decided that they would continue to explore this endeavor as more than a single performance example of what the CD had to offer. Black Tie is currently writing music for their second album and hopes to have it finished by the fall of 2006.
