Artist: Panic & The Rebel Emergency, Album: Captured By A Vision, Song: Wander Far Away

"There's no boundary for your thoughts.  Let your mind wander far away."  As the story goes, Toronto rock band, The Rebel Emergency, were looking for a studio to record their debut album in and found one in the Bronx, New York.  One of the resident producers at the studio was a reggae artist named, Panic.  Following a recording session, Panic and the band decided to jam which led to the recording of an album.  That album was Captured By A Vision and it was released in 2005.  It is a melting pot of reggae, rock and ska.  One of the more relaxed tracks is a tune called Wander Far Away.  The band played shows and festivals in the U.S., Jamaica as well as Canada in support of this release and received a great deal of positive press.  Panic decided to leave the band for personal reasons following this release.  The Rebel Emergency returned in 2008 with their debut EP that contains re-recorded versions of some of the songs from Captured By A Vision.  In 2009, they released their first full length album of new material.  The band is set to release their third album this year.  You can follow them at  You can hear the song, Wander Far Away, on You Tube (  You can purchase this album on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
