The Pollen Collective

The Pollen Collective took a weekend – 13 hours to be exact - in March of 2019 to record this Live 5 Song EP with Luke Prietto at Room 34 in San Clemente California.

It was imperative to the Band that they capture their music as true to their live performance as possible, as it is at their live gigs where their creative prowess and personality is shown best. Thus a live recording made the most natural sense for their variety of musical pollination.

We hope you enjoy these songs as much as we enjoyed recording them for you.
