09.06.01 Eamonn Vitt's debut EP will be the 20th release of The Self-Starter Foundation this Fall!

09.06.01 Eamonn has been in the studio in Chicago and NYC recording his debut EP and album for the last couple of months.

A little over seven years ago, three guys in Boston named Geoff, Gavin, and Eamonn started a band called Karate. In November of 1994, they recorded two songs entitled "Death Kit" and "Nerve" for their debut 7". It came out in January of 1995 as the debut release of The Self-Starter Foundation.

Cut to 2001.

Eamonn left Karate a couple of years ago to start the process of becoming Eamonn Vitt, MD. But just because he's going to be a doctor doesn't mean he doesn't want to play music anymore. He calls up a bunch of friends, holes up in the studio, and records a bunch of songs. Plaintive. Simple. Decidedly American. The songs are good. It's as simple as that. The Self-Starter Foundation is proud to debut another of Eamonn Vitt's musical endeavors.
