The self-titled debut album from the Express has been years in the making. A collaboration between first cousins Liam Corcoran and Kinley Dowling, it was whispered about at the family Christmas party long before the two ever made it into a studio together. While on tour together in 2009, (Liam was singing with Two Hours Traffic and Kinley was playing violin with Hey Rosetta!), the pair made a commitment to get the project off the ground. By early 2010, Liam was showing Kinley the ultra-personal material he had been compiling - material that needed a home outside of a pop/rock band.
