My version of ‘Rocket Man’ is finally out both the
‘The Making Of’ Video.

Like many of us, I spent the Christmas holidays in self-isolation, far from my family. But, working on this song in my studio helped me to don’t feel lonely. It was an incredible journey into memories. Dad used to play 'The Rocket Man' in the car when he drove me to school. I hope that It would bring the same emotions to you! 🚀👩‍🚀

When the world first shut down in 2020, we were stunned and heartbroken. We had no idea at the time how the pandemic would both limit us, but also force us to find new, innovative ways to be creative. We spent two years recreating our big stage songs in small rooms at Francisco Studios and The Complex Recording Studio. We rented the infamous, surreal bungalow-dungeon known as The Hobbit House in Sacramento to perform two-person duets for streaming audiences in front of a roaring fireplace. We played showcases on Facebook Live and Twitch, for tremendous music organizations like Music City San Francisco and Balanced Breakfast. And of course, we hauled our gear over to the DNA Lounge mainstage to play the very first Star Crash from Afar ✨

Out of all these once-in-a-lifetime pandemic performances, we came away with over 60 incredible multi-track recordings. We've now mixed and mastered the best 12 of them, to make an album we never thought we'd make. This record is appropriately named after a lyric from our very first song ever, which, though written in 2012, nevertheless sums up the vibe of these last two years: "We can't always lift the fog, even when we're together. It might take a little bit longer, before it gets much better." Now that it is much, much better, we're very proud to release this special live collection: our brand-new live album, When We're Together. Dropping this Wednesday, February 2nd on Spotify and wherever you get your streaming music.
