    Dayton’s Nick Kizirnis has made a new solo record unlike anything he’s recorded in the past. The Distance has an Americana, Alt-Country feel to it - imagine a cool Chris Isaak record, but with female lead vocals. Kate Wakefield from the band Lung provides brilliant vocals on The Distance, while Kizirnis, along with Crazy Joe Tritschler, Patrick Himes (Bribing Senators, Flyaway Minion), Tod Weidner (Shrug, Motel Beds) & drummer Mark Patterson (Son Volt), adds rich textures throughout the 11 Kizirnis originals and 2 cover songs by Lucinda Williams (Am I Too Blue) and Tom Waits (Take It With Me).

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

Take it With Me
The phone's off the hook, no one knows where we are
It's a long time since I drank champagne
The ocean's blue, as blue as your eyes
I'm gonna take it with me when I go

Old long since gone, now way back when
We lived in Coney Island
There ain't no good thing ever dies
I'm gonna take it with me when I go

Far, far away a train whistle blows
Wherever you're goin', wherever you've been
Waving goodbye at the end of the day
You're up and you're over, and you're far away

Always for you, and forever yours
It felt just like the old days
We fell asleep on Beaula's porch
I'm gonna take it with me when I go

All broken down by the side of the road
I's never more alive or alone
I've worn the faces off all the cards
I'm gonna take it with me when I go

The children are playing at the end of the day
Strangers are singing on our lawn
It's got to be more than flesh and bone
All that you've loved is all you own

In a land there's a town, and in that town there's a house
And in that house there's my baby
And in that babby there's a heart I love
I'm gonna take it with me when I go
