The 6-song album Wartime Songs is a "minimalistic" rock record featuring only two musicians - James Orn on guitar and vocals and drummer Dustin Richardson. All songs were recorded during a single session at Retrophonic Studios near Jacksonville, FL with audio engineer Jim Devito. Devito has worked with bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and more. Additional parts for guitar and vocals were recorded at the band's studio in Indiana.

The songs were mixed by acclaimed producer and engineer Sylvia Massey and Fernando Flores. Sylvia Massey has worked in the studio with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Tool and more.

The song "Two Lovers" was chosen for a compilation CD called "Fresh Cuts" and 50,000 CDs were given away in Guitar Center stores.

The song "Just a Game" was featured in a movie trailer for the film "Demolition" starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The song also appeared in the Rock Band video game along with "Hitman Blues".

The song "Stay Gone For Good" is heard in the video game "Rebel Galaxy" and has become the most-played song by the band with over 130,000 plays on Spotify.
