Extensive Definition

Simplify is Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband's second album independently released in 1999 by the band on its own label Tydal Wave Records. It was again made available when the band signed a record deal with Capitol Nashville under the name "Simplified". The tracklistings vary by dropping tracks available on their major label debut release Dream Big and adding in the track "If I Had The Things I Wanted" (a track first available on their Live! album) as a studio version.
