Exciting things in the works...

We’ve got a new album underway, and we can’t wait to share it with you! We recorded it live in two days (as we do) at Studio808A in Floyd, VA with the one-and-only Joseph "joebass" DeJarnette. For the first time we’re unveiling original material, and we have some incredible guests artists sitting in as well: Evan Kinney on accordion, and Aaron Olwell on clarinet. We’re proud of the product, and we’re hard at work getting the pieces in place for its release later this summer. Stay tuned for details, including pre-sale info! In the meantime, here’s a peak at the recording process: 

We took over this beautiful old farmhouse for a few days.
