Our friends at Acid Ted have posted about our live cover of the classic Frank Sinatra song “Just the Way You Look Tonight”. They think it’s bonkers! (And I agree, Frank is probably not happy, then again, who knows? Maybe he’d love it…?) Thanks to Colin for bearing with me. 😉 (He knows what I’m talking about…)
Last Sunday we were played on 102.1 KPRI’s wonderful Homegrown Hour by Cathryn Beeks, thanks Cathryn! It’s great hearing your song on the stereo and seeing a broadcast frequency on the little screen instead of “CD”, or even worse, “AUX”. haha. You can listen to the recording at the following link. We’re on the June 3rd Segment 3 podcast.
We were featured recently in the SD Reader, it’s a nice article by Dave Good about how we got played on the BBC. This is what happens when you come to shows like the one we had tonight at the Ruby Room. Thank you all for coming!

We have a Ruby Room show May 31st at 8pm, it’s gonna be pretty cool. We’re doing all these covers of singer-songwriter songs with kick drum 16th notes. We may be creating a new genre of music, maybe. Of course we’re also doing all our originals as well but I’m equally excited about both.
It’s official, we were played on BBC Radio Kent last Sunday, yes THE BBC. Apparently famed DJ Sean Rowley took a liking to our song “Tattoo on Her Shoulder”. Boy is it weird having someone important talk about you.
We have the broadcast recorded here for your listening/downloading pleasure.
We’ve got an EP out now, it’s called Paint the Town and we’re putting up the first track for free download (at the top of the main page), please share it with anyone you think would like it. You can order the EP at our Bandcamp page or iTunes. The whole recording turned out pretty well and I think you’ll all like it! You can read about it on the music page.
