Emotional Bootcamp is a full-length album of folk-rock fury. The songs range from the catchy radio-friendly “Twilight”; hard rockin “Temptation”; singer-songwriter “Cards and Letters”; lyrically folky “Hurried to Leave”; upbeat triumphant “After All”; personal and political “Beggar’s Plea”; new alt-country “Gone”; graceful pop “Reign Falls”; to the more electronically sonic “Hug Me Up” and “Everything You Need”. There’s definitely something for everyone.

Folkstar decided to go a little old school with the physical CD, while avoiding the use of plastic. Purchase a quality physical CD and you receive a fancy 6-panel CD eco-wallet with photos of Folkstar and the authentic lyrics to all of the songs on the CD!!


released February 14, 2012
