Recorded at Studio 144, a smoky loft space in Green Hill, Alabama, "Mind Over Manners" was produced by Rob Aldridge and Jay Burgess of The Pollies. The Proponents, along with additional talents like Clint Chandler on keyboards, Caleb Elliott on cello, and Kimi Samson on violin, poured their hearts into the creation of this album. However, their triumph is bittersweet. The passing of Proponents bassist Stone Anderson from an accidental drug overdose in April 2021 deeply shook both the band and the North Alabama music scene. For Aldridge, working on "Mind Over Manners" became a poignant reminder that it was the last project he would share with his childhood friend Stone. Explore the highs and lows of this remarkable band's journey as they pour their souls into their music.
