About this project

Our goal for 2011 is to break into national folk, roots, and Americana festivals, and bring a whole new set of tunes to life as part of our second CD, a live album. A wonderful chance to do exactly that has recently appeared for us.

We just found out that we have been selected to do a Showcase Presentation at the 2011 International Folk Alliance Convention in Memphis, TN in mid February! This is an amazing opportunity to be seen by the best and biggest festival promoters and presenters in the business and play our music for the international folk community.

But that's not all - While in Memphis, we have an opportunity to record a Live CD in the legendary studio that gave birth to Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and countless others - Sun Records! We can't think of a better room to help us get that live, rootsy, vintage sound than Sun. This trip to Memphis will be the perfect start to an exciting year for the band, and the culmination of our 2 years of writing, playing live, recording, and our lifelong history together.

However, to get there we need your help, and fast! In order to play the conference and make the live CD, we need to pay for air travel from California, hotels, conference fees, and our recording costs at Sun Studios.

Please help us make this crucial and exciting start to our 2011 goals possible. It would be a dream come true to get to play with all of these wonderful artists from around the world, record in such a historic studio and visit this amazing city.

Thank you!
