HERLAND, a five-piece band from the U.S. Northeast (not Canadian as some websites say) is made up of the three Herland brothers Frank, Scott & John, all with many years of experience in the music business including radio, television and commercial recordings. They have supported over the years many major acts such as White Lion, LA Guns, Gary Cherone from Extreme, etc.
In the mid-Nineties the bros. released independently their self-produced debut “One Small Step”. Their style has many influences, mostly American Melodic Rock, with a guitar driven sound and pretty good vocal arrangements / harmonies.
“One Small Step” is a really cool album, but I don't understand the ridiculous prices (over $ 100) of this CD at Ebay. Surely because it's a collectors piece and out of print.
I have featured here on the blog several years ago a promo copy distributed before the official release. Now, as requested, here's the full “One Small Step” album, plus 3 extra tracks recorded by the band later.
