One year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut solo recording, Mount Pelee, Trey Johnson delivers an eclectic mix of music performed by a variety of musicians. Produced by Trey, his partner Don Cento, guitarist and producer/arranger on Mount Pelee, and Paul Williams (Polyphonic Spree, Rev. Horton Heat).

Where the East Ends has a unique identity all its own. Where Mount Pelee searched for new sonic territory and subject matter, W.T.E.E. explores different styles and energy. Recorded in just 10 days in May at Tomcast studios in Dallas the core band remained the same, James Driscoll, Rich Martin and Don Cento. However this time around, new musicians are heard all over the record. Matt Kellum provides the bulk of the drumming. Joe Cripps, and studio owner Tom Bridwell also contribute. Bubba Hernandez contributes upright and Tuba. Chad Stockslager and Becky Middleton contribute backing vocals. A horn section including Annie Benjamin on flute and Dave Monsch on saxaphone round out the cast. The result is a recording with more personality and unexpected turns than its predecessor. At Just under 35 minutes it'll fit in your pocket and leave you wishing there was more left.
Mixed by Stuart Sikes. (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse, Loretta Lynn).
