The Wanderer is an album released in 1997 by O.A.R. The album was recorded at Gizmo Recording Company in Silver Spring, Maryland with engineer/producer Gantt Kushner while the band was still in high school, and without a record label. The original album artwork and design was conceived of by Jed Tamarkin. The name Of A Revolution was too long to make into a logo so Jed shortened it to simply the acronym O.A.R., its first use as a reference to the band. Online distribution helped make the album popular on college campuses, where O.A.R. attained much of their fan base.
