Miles Perry and Curly Collins had known dobro player Allen Cooke from playing music in the Boulder bluegrass scene. They asked Allen to join the band shortly after. Etienne Cremieux moved to the Boulder area in the fall of 2013 and began playing with the group almost immediately. He officially joined the band during the recording of the CMC's first album, "Til the Sun Gives Us A Day." They recorded the album at a studio up in Ward, Colorado over a three day period in January 2014.
