A new collection of songs by Darren Schlappich

When Darren and Mike started working on songs with longtime friend Bruce Siekmann, they weren't sure where things were going. Two years later, they've got a 12-song album, a six-piece backing band that includes Cory and a catalog of original songs that continues to grow. If you're a Frog Holler fan, you'll find Ataloft both strangely familiar and altogether new.
