With shows, new gear, moving, vocal nodes, ups, downs, new songs and more shows, we have arrived.
"Where?" you ask?
At that place all bands hope to arrive at some point. The place where they've accumulated an album's worth of music they are proud of. The place where the only natural next step seems to be to share that music with their loyal supporters. The place where the hard work, the difficult decisions, and the creative adventuring all meet and a tangible product is born.
We are hitting the studio in three weeks time and we have never been more excited!!!
We've journeyed through this year gently searching for our sound, trying to figure out who we are as a band, and though we still have no freakin' clue, this album highlights that journey. It explores the merging of two styles, two brains and two hearts. It's full of life and story. Many of the songs were co-written from the get-go, and some were brought to the table by one of us with an entire structure, while the other person added harmonies, lyrics or instrumentation.
For months now we've had folks come up to us after shows with the intention to take our music home with them, only for us to tell them 'no'. Each time was a reminder of the mega support and enthusiasm we've received throughout the year, for which we are oh so grateful.
Music runs deep in both of our bones. It is not just a pastime, not just a passion...it's a must. Natalie and I connected on a shared desire to reach out and affect people, the way we both have spent our lives being affected by the musical magic of our peers. This is another move in that direction.
