“Seattle based Satchel was originally formed by vocalist Shawn Smith and drummer Regan Hagar, after their previous band Brad (which also featured Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard) went on hiatus.

Satchel released their first album EDC in 1994. Most of EDC's song titles were taken from the character's names in the film Reservoir Dogs, one of the band's favorite movies.

Their second album The Family is considered their best and was originally released in 1996. The album was co-produced by Stone Gossard. Their piano based rock and Smith's intense voice turn this album into a real classic.” - Music On Vinyl

“Since it would be almost impossible to top their vastly underrated 1994 debut, EDC, Satchel tried a different approach on their 1996 follow-up, The Family. The overproduction that actually helped the debut (a rare case) is stripped away, replaced by simplicity and economy courtesy of producers Stone Gossard and Matt Wallace. There's also a greater emphasis on early-'70s Elton John-esque ballads, with an occasional rocker inserted -- the complete opposite of their debut's setup. The uptempo, irresistible pop of "Without Love" deserved to be Satchel's breakthrough hit, but instead was ignored. Still, there's an abundance of strong tracks, like the opening melancholia of "Isn't That Right," the creepy bass of the desperate "Tomorrow," and the spaced-out synthesizer work featured in "Criminal Justice" (which served as a trusty opening number on Satchel's resulting tour).” - AllMusic
