From the gospel-driven political rocker "Reawakened" to the accoustic "This Small Town," this 4-track EP is full of surprises. Ames plays a MIDI guitar synthesizer and his two backup singers come full-throated and in rare form for this 2017 Indie wake up call.

"The build up is loaded with genuine emotion, and the instrumentation and surrounding vocals have a wildness about them that is exciting and also very consistent now with what you soon come to know as the Four Faces sound." -, Feb, 2017 -

This small town / has too few streets
When i walk down / everyone recognizes me
They all know / i’ve been going to your house
So tonight I decided, I’m gonna kiss you on your mouth

I walked in to town today
Just to buy these brand new clothes
And along the way I picked these
Each one’s a different rose

This small town, its what I like
This small town its gonna last us all our lives

I love you / I want you to know that
Cause it feels sooo natural / just, just like it’s fact
Like it was written in a book / then made into a movie
Like that one we saw last week, I held your hand and you squeezed

I walked in to town today
And I bought these brand new clothes
And along the way I picked these
Each one’s a different rose
