Its been a while folks! We are very eager to deliver an apology for the absence of postings here in our news. We have been extremely busy, yet, that is no excuse for keeping in touch with YOU. Our tour was more than wonderful, we saw everything a band could want (and not want) to see and experience (and not experience, such as a busted alternator, running out of money, and two flat tires). We are super happy to announce that we placed 3rd at the annual Telluride Bluegrass band competition! We were up against some serious folks who were very talented in today’s sound of original roots music. We feel that we held it down, played our best, and were given nothing but the best treatment from all the wonderful people in that town that weekend. It was tough to leave! But, we are back home safe and sound now and glad for it. And since, we recently got the opportunity of a lifetime to open for one of our biggest heroes-Emmylou Harris, right here in our hometown Richmond! Good golly, it was incredible. She looked and sounded as beautiful as ever…
We have a new website up and coming. Created by life mate Evan VanDyke. Hopefully the new site will help us to deliver quick and efficient news to those of you who still read this text stuff via interwebs without the hassle of hackers and spammers. I do enjoy writing it as long as you enjoy reading it.
At the end of our one month tour (June), we hit Rock Island Illinois to record a Daytrotter session (www.daytrotter.com)! This is great stuff. Basically, a handful of super music enthusiasts have in the past ten years created a music database consisting of local and nationally known bands who swing by their studio on tour, record, get outta there, and then release it on their website. You get the full mood and essence of what the band’s material was that day. Even better it is original, previously unheard of and unrecorded material from that band. We threw down four tracks which are so: Two Oak Trees, 1000 Miles, Babe Dont Listen, and Dear John. They also provide and promote a wonderfully lighthearted and comical illustration of the band. This is more than an efficient business model for listening to and promoting new original music. Please join and listen!! Its for the cause of our very existence these days in this tough bizz.
We play at the Broadberry in Richmond VA tomorrow night (August 1rst). 9pm sharp. Our debut show there. Would love to see all the beautiful faces of our friends, fans and family.
