The project started when Lucas started writing and sending songs to an ex-girlfriend in an effort to win her back. Originally the songs were not intended for release, but upon realizing he had an album's worth of material he put together a band to play with. Randy Payne and Tom Szidon were recruited from Lucas' cover band The Cold Space, and Aaron Duggins and Rebecca Manthe came from The Tossers.
