Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to pay-what-you-want to download our whole album, Years, on Yes, that means FREE if you want it to mean free! Hurry, it only applies to the first 200 downloads!

We got called Saturday to fill-in as the direct support for Ben Rector in front of approx. 500 at Amos’ Southend! It was a killer opportunity and we’re very thankful to have gotten it. We’ll be uploading some video from it soon, but for now, here’s a pic:

Studio this wknd for Acoustic EP

February 16, 2013 @ 4:48 pm

An excellent opportunity for us to record an acoustic EP with the producer of “Years”, Swaff, came about a few weeks ago, so we’re currently in ATL in the middle of the process. We’re tracking an acoustic version of “Settle It Down” with Swaff and Jake Roland as I type, along with 2 new songs: “Price You Pay” and “Timing Is Everything”. The EP should be ready for your ears early this spring!

Make sure you follow all of our social media accounts to keep up with the pictures & process:
