THE DIFFICULTY With Sweeney may be the brainchild of songwriter Joey Sweeney. He founded the indie pop clothing in 1999 after departing the Barnabys. Alongside music artists John Howkins, Erik Schmidt, Joey Mangan, and Erica J. Pennella, Sweeney produced a rootsy pop audio; a self-titled EP was released within almost a year. Burnt Toast released the difficulty With Sweeney’s appropriate studio room full-length, Dear Existence, in 2001. A 12 months later, the music group delivered another nice collection of tunes around the Play Karen among others EP.
