Penumbrae from Detroit, Michigan have established themselves as a solid AAA oriented pop band. In July of 2005 the band released their debut full-length disc entitled "One Way Drive" and it reveals the band fully-formed. Coupled with mature emotional lyricism and high-level musicianship, the disc illustrates a strong chemistry between the musicians throughout. Lish's soaring vocals guide the listener at once from the tight rock songs and artful, low-key ballads to explore more challenging time signatures while providing an undeniable accessibility. Lyrically each song is a broad brush stroke presenting a very human side and all elements work wonderful together.

Tracks from "One Way Drive" have received airplay on WQKL, WHFR, WCKS, WLNZ, WIDR, WWSP, WLTL, WBKE, WYCE, WBGU, WNMC, WSDP, WBLD, WORT, WBSD, WJHS, WLVR, WRCT, WDBM, WHFR, and have appeared in-studio with Mitch Albom at WJR on his nationally syndicated show and Pam Rossi's 'Overeasy' on WCSX.
