Schooner Sails on For A Good Cause

Hailing from Carrboro, North Carolina, Schooner is a four-member band currently comprised of Reid Johnson (whose sister, Kathryn, played and recorded on all of the band's material until recently), Billy Alphin (The Ashley Stove, The Rosebuds), Maria Albani (Organos, Pleasant), and Chris Badger (Hotel Lights). Together they create an understated, disheveled pop sound that ranges from narcotic sad-eyed tunes to erratic rock numbers highlighted by boy-girl harmonies and impressionist lyrics.

Schooner has released two full-length albums, You Forget About Your Heart , and Hold on Too Tight, along with a few limited edition EP's. The band's latest EP release, Duck Kee Sessions, recorded at the legendary Jerry Kee's Duck Kee Studios (Superchunk, Kingsbury Manx, Polvo) will be released exclusively on, a music downloading site that donates all proceeds to brain cancer research.
