“Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.” – Otto von Bismarck.

We don’t know Otto’s musical tastes but we know that his famous quote did not extend to record albums. And thanks to PLEDGEMUSIC, you can see just how The Reluctant Apostle’s first record album will be made.

We bring together the history of dozens of collaborations, hundreds of albums and thousands of concerts. The result is world-class musicianship and a shared instinct that infuses their connoisseur’s songbook of recordings with a confidence that only derives from years of high level experience.

As some of you may know, we trace our roots back to SONS OF ANARCHY’S musical muse, The Forest Rangers. We began recording covers and original songs for the hit series; unknowingly, it was the start of something very unique and special.

But it’s a new day and with that comes a new band!

So who exactly are these THE RELUCTANT APOSTLES?

We are Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson) on bass and vocals, Phil Shenale (Tori Amos, Jane’s Addiction) on keys, Billy Harvey (Patty Griffin, Charlie Mars) on guitar and vocals, Michael Urbano (Cracker, Smash Mouth) on drums, Bob Thiele on vocals and guitar, Jr. (Bonnie Raitt, Mavis & Pop Staples) and, of course, Katey Sagal, singing and playing guitar and percussion.

Of course, no project such as this would be complete without the incredible Dave Way, master of the recording console and good vibes, keeping us on course.

This record is truly a passion project, and it’s the record that WE want to make. No record companies telling us what to do. All of us have done that enough for one lifetime!

On this page and this page only, you will have the opportunity to pre-order the album as well as get some great exclusive merchandise. So we invite you--encourage you--to join us in this experience.

You may also like to know that 20% of the proceeds from this PLEDGEMUSIC campaign will go to support THE PEGGY ALBRECHT FRIENDLY HOUSE, a women’s recovery house in Los Angeles.

Please check out this page and take a look at the ways you can get involved. You can participate in as much or as little as you wish; every bit gets us one step closer to releasing this record. And check back for updates directly from us as we continue on this ride! We hope you are as excited as we are!

20% of all money raised will go to The Peggy Albrecht Friendly House.
