Here Comes The Time attempts to transcend contemporary genres and styles - a record that reaches across musical aisles. The songs were largely conceived during Chris's stay in the hills of Laurel Canyon and Hollywood, California, and chronicle a love story that unfolded shortly before the HCTT recording sessions. The album was produced by Rob Campanella (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) along with first time producer Jon Alderson. Here Comes The Time also features the percussion of Nelson Bragg (Brian Wilson's Band) as well as guest appearances from Alex Maas (The Black Angels) and Stephanie Hunt (Glee).
Once the album was complete Chris returned to Texas where he was able to summon various friends and musicians to join his band, affectionately known as The Native Americans, including Chris Catalena (piano, guitar, harmonica, vox), Casey Seymour (Drums, Bass), Jon Alderson (Bass, Drums), Luke Dawson (of Spin Drift on Steel guitar), Lisa Lam (Violin), and Greg Enlow (of The Strange Boys on Guitar). Limited to 500 copies.
"The Album was made in California with Brian Jonestown Massacre's Rob Campanella producing, and the record features members of Black Angels, as well as Brian Wilson percussionist Nelson Bragg. Written while staying in Los Angeles and nearby Laurel Canyon, it's definitely got some of that history infused in its dusty, twilight-psychedelic songs. ."
