happy holidays

Old Man Winter! Some people love the winter, and some people are normal. Uh, more seriously, I’m very happy that some folks enjoy the season even if it’s not my cup of tea (although it’s a time of year when I drink many cups of tea!). I hope that wherever you fall on the spectrum of winter enjoyment that you are finding your own space to do what feels good for you! We’ve played our last show of the year — a wonderful shindig with Oh Susanna! — but we have some good holiday news to share anyway. As you…    read more.

Album Release — “In City & Country” is finally here!!!

Our new album, “In City & Country”, is finally here! You can BUY IT NOW on all the different services/places you might think to purchase an album in this day and age: We have been steadily releasing singles, but we’re really excited that the folks can finally listen to the whole album, because we’re old school enough to care about crafting an album that has a cohesive structure and theme to it. We hope you enjoy it. It’s already been getting some love from radio, which we hugely appreciate, including cracking the Top 10 on the National Earshot Folk/Roots/Blues chart…    read more.

finishing the new album, listening to some old albums

We traveled back to Montreal recently to complete the final mix session for our new album — “in city & country”. We’ve been working at the Hotel2Tango studio with producer Howard Bilerman and it has been an exciting process although, like every construction project in history, it has taken longer than we thought. Hopefully the extra effort has been worth it! We’re looking forward to releasing the album this coming spring and playing shows around the countryside, some of which will be full-band shows! Plans are in the works. Songs for this new album were almost all written about specific…    read more.

autumn albums from our friends to you + touring plans

I have only recently been dipping my proverbial toe into using Spotify to listen to music. One thing that is truly enjoyable about it is finding all my musician friends on Spotify! A few have released albums lately, so I wanted to make a playlist to highlight their new works and maybe even throw in some older tracks from other albums that are also amazing. Check out the playlist and follow these artists, and keep track because I will be updating it as the year goes on and more albums get released! We’re also working on finishing our album, which…    read more.

back from tour & in love with autumn

Touring is amazing, but we are glad to be home and ready to have a love affair with autumn. We enjoyed some old-fashioned east coast hospitality on our tour, and we’d like to say a big thank you to all the folks who shared a floor, a meal, a stage, or a sing-along with us along the way! Going on tour is like an extended marathon of good times, and it was fantastic to be able to share those times with such great people. Double kudos go out to our drummer Mike, his wife Eileen, and their 4-month-old daughter Broghan…    read more.
