The Story
Long before his role as the party face of the Jade Tree empire, label co-owner Darren Walters fronted Railhed. Backing Darren were three other boys from the home of tax-free shopping, including future Walleye drummer and Clay Creek studio engineer (None More Black, Paint it Black) Nick Rotundo. With guitars too crunchy to be the indie pop of Chapel Hill, and lyrics too introspective for the hardcore puritan set, Railhed provides a sublime preview of what was to soon come, as well as a creative reinterpretation of contemporaries like Samiam, Jawbreaker, and Dag Nasty .

Where Are They Now
Stewart Ebersole
Last we heard, Stu was teaching at a private school in Chester Country, Pennsylvania, which is located right outside of Philadelphia.
Mark McKinney
Currently living in Philadelphia, Mark earns his living as a chef at both the Cantina Los Caballitos and The Royal Tavern.
Nick Rotundo
Currently lives in Newark, Delaware, and runs his own recording complex (Clay Creek Recording Studio).
Darren Walters
Co-founded Jade Tree with Tim Owen and currently works daily from their plush Wilmington, Delaware, offices. He rides his road bike religiously and is very careful about what he eats.
