  • Hard copy CD ~ "Best Of" Union Pulse ~ final 5 copies
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Designed and assembled by the band themselves, this limited pressing of 400 discs has been distributed to family and friends as well as each of the bandmates' solo shows following the band's eventual break-up. Only 15 copies remain, so the former frontman of Union Pulse is personally making them available from his new headquarters in New York City, where he is pursuing a solo career. Each copy comes with two all-weather stickers featuring the logo of his new singer-songwriter campaign under his own name, James Tristan Redding. An autograph is available upon request, at no extra charge, but be advised that requires first removing the shrink-wrap. An autographed CD will therefor arrive with no shrink wrap.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ten Year Anniversary via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

From the album "Between Love and Addiction"


In the back of the bar on a Friday night
Around one in the morning, I spilled her beer
Now it's only right that I got her another
With a smile, because my money's no good here

Now I can't quite remember if it was guilt or excitement
But I'll probably never see her again
So before I rest, I've gotta' confess
That I was looking at her, but I was thinking of you

You know, she gave her her address, and if it were a couple of years ago
I might have signed a letter before I got home
The funny thing is, I'm no less desperate
I'm just lazy, and getting used to sleeping alone

I'll admit she was pretty (in that imperfect kinda' way)
Like the spark of a lighter that ran outta' fuel
So before I rest, I gotta' confess
that I was looking at her, but I was thinking of you

It's been too long since I've held a pretty hand
And every night my only friends are in my band
I'm not that old, but you're too young to steal my heart
But I guess you can borrow it

There were holes in the highway the whole way home
But the road flattened out as we pulled into town
There's a time and a place for everything, and tonight it's rain on the sidewalk
And the hope that we won't let each other down

Now it's 4am, and I smell like an ashtray
But I'll still complain when you light up tomorrow
So before I rest, I gotta' confess
That I was looking at her, but I was thinking of you

The band embodied James Redding's soul bound lyrics and leg bending rhythm. In their decade of recording and touring they released five original albums (and one live EP) and delivered over 700 performances throughout the lower 48 states. ... more
