My Woman on a Train, The Royal Blue Band

We are excited to release our 3P EP My Woman on a Train . Check it out by selecting the Listen tab above.


Coming off our 2016 LP release "Ramshackle Groove", we wanted to hit the studio again with a few held over songs. Our original intent was to release a 60s sounding single and b-side. We ended up recording a 3rd song (Windowpain) and decided to release the tunes as a 3 song EP (aka 3P). We hope you enjoy!


Recorded at SecondHand Studios, Appleton, WI

Engineer and Co-Producer - Aaron Duesterhoeft 

Mastered at Mystery Room Mastering, Milwaukee, WI 

Cover Photo - Parker Taugner 

Cover Design - Odalis Kerwell
