We started breaking down the original Silo Studio yesterday to return it to its former life as a two car garage and a den. Took one last group of photos to remember it. Gonna miss the old place. We learned a lot there.

Here’s a project we did last year, back when we could all be in the same room at the same time. Give it a spin.

03/27/2020

The new Silo is ready for us to move in tomorrow. There’s still a few things we need to finish, a few trim pieces here and there but that’ll get taken care of when all the virus stuff is over and we won’t need HazMat suits to go to the Home Depot.
Anyway, the space is smaller than the current space, and the ceilings are lower but the ears are still the same and that’s what matters.

5 Piece Tama Drum Set

We’re selling our old studio kit. It has served us well but we won’t have as much space for storing it where we’re headed so it’s time for it to find a new home.

Five piece Tama Swingstar kit, made in Taiwan. Snare is a Pearl Maxim. Drums are in good order, the snare has one broken bolt as shown in photo. $350.

The Belle Curves - Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos)

Delaney and Kelsey are wandering around the USA this month. They stopped in #JoshuaTree for a little while and shot a new Belle Curves video, a hauntingly beautiful acoustic cover of Woody’s “Deportee”. ❤️❤️❤️

Went out into Joshua Tree National Park and made a video covering the Woody Guthrie classic, an old song that feels relevant today.
