Our new song is out today! We wrote it in Seattle on one of the rare snowy days. Sitting by the window, taking in those little fleeting moments.

We have a release date. Repeat: we have a release date!!

It sounds like I’m breaking out of jail, and perhaps in some ways I am. These songs have been locked up and under wraps for so long they began to forget what the sunshine felt like. All of that is about to change:

8/6/2019

That’s the date. That’s the date we’re setting these tunes free and letting this jailbird sing.

More details to come. Stay tuned…

Our new song is out today! This song was written as a reminder to ourselves that no matter what’s going in our lives we have each other. Our friends. Our family. Our community.
Big thank you for following, listening to these songs and supporting this journey we call a band.
