The Countdown Begins…

Songs on papersAlmost done!

We recorded the last vocal track the other day for our new album! Yay! We’re so excited! It is, without a doubt, the best work we’ve written and produced thus far and are over-the-top excited to share it with you. It’s been a wild ride these last couple of months, not only with the writing and recording, but also with our successful Kickstarter campaign, garnering the help of our fans to fund the production of our new album. Thanks to our fans, we will have the new CD ready for distribution by the time we start our BC tour in late April. We are only waiting for the mixing and mastering to be finished before we send the CD off to be printed.

Pre-ordering is now available on our ‘Music’ page.

CD release tour in BC in April & May. Stay tuned for CD release shows in Halifax and other locales in NS. Our calendar has all the details!

Kickstarter Campaign

We’re recording a new CD and need your help!

We are deep in the makings of a new CD and need your help to finish it. The costs of production, studio time, musician time, CD manufacturing and promo, costs well over $10,000. We are doing our best to pay as much of it as we can ourselves, but it is a daunting task so we’ve initiated a ‘KickStarter Campaign‘.. Since moving to Nova Scotia two and a half years ago to be closer to a thriving music scene (and cheaper housing), it has been a struggle to adjust to being full-time musicians and artists. But it’s where our passion lies and we believe it’s all worth it. Below is a sampler from the studio and…

What we have so far are the bones of six songs tracked and ready for vocals, and at least four more songs in the works waiting to be tracked. Since our last album two years ago, we have spent much effort on honing our skills as songwriters, attending songwriting camps and SAC (Songwriters Association of Canada) meetings, working on our craft as best we can. The result is a much stronger album and songs that we are incredibly excited about and we can’t wait to share them with you. We are thrilled to be working with producer Jamie Robinson again, who is playing all the guitar tracks as well, along with Adam Dowling on drums as before, and newcomer to our fold, Ron Hynes on bass. Extremely talented players all round. We know you’ll be impressed!

So any and all help is much appreciated, and from the bottom of our hearts, with much gratitude, thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Welcoming in 2015…

Happy New Year! We had a great break over Christmas! We turned off all the electronic devices in our world, except for our home phone of course, from Christmas through New Years! It was good to disconnect and get ready for the studio in the coming weeks.
But, just before Christmas, we recorded a couple of seasonal songs with Jimmie Inch.
Jimmie produces the “Sessions” TV show. Here’s what happened at our house…

We got a FACTOR Grant !! :-) The Foundation to Asssist Canadian Talent on Recordings provides great opportunities for new and established artists. We applied for, and received, a grant to produce some demo work. We wrote about this in relation to the writing and music process and ended up having it published online here.

Gigs coming up!
