We had three goals coming into this year: climb on the baby train, get a proper band website, and record a proper album. Two outta three ain’t bad. With Olivia making her debut in early February, we are so excited to get into the studio with our band this Spring. This is a long awaited endeavor for the two of us, and we’re so happy to have found a fun group of people to come along on the journey with us.

We do need a little help along the road, however. We’ve managed to save up a good chunk of our recording costs, but we need a bit more to get us over the top. Big or small, your donation will help get us to Colorado to make this album a reality. We’ve come up with some fun incentives that we hope will tickle your fancy.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with our sound, we are a happy mix of americana, soul and folk. You can take a listen to some duo demos here.

More than anything, though, we want to thank those of you who have already been walking this road with us. We couldn’t have made it this far without your love and support. Here’s to many more years of music to come!

Risks and challenges

We realize that this project will likely carry various challenges. Whether it be time constraints, travel, or the artistic process, we know that somewhere along the line we are going to come across a variety of obstacles that we'll need to jump over.

However, we believe in this project, and we know that if an obstacle does get in the way, that we're committed and prepared to overcome the challenges it might present.
