Hello Friends and Happy New Year! 

We're so grateful for the epic year that was 2018 for us, and you all helped make it possible.

a new DRR record; NCIS: New Orleans TV appearance and song placement; 
Melissa played her first Bass guitar gigs; Matthew continues playing with Shawn Williams (who is nominated for two Offbeat Awards here in New Orleans!) 

One day at a time, we keep truckin' down the path, our heads…

New Radio Show! New Year! New Adventures! 

2018 has snuck up on us, and brought extreme cold (at least for us and what we're used to!).  Freezing temps are not the norm for our winter vibes.

This past year felt full of starts and stalls.  So many dreams and ideas we ponder and come up with...just seem to evaporate almost out of the starting gate.  I'll admit, it's difficult sometimes to be both the creator and the manager and activator/motivator.  And sometimes, it's just not the right time yet for an idea to fully manifest.  So with patience and…

Gratitude Season 

The year is winding down, and the retail world is winding up.
We're winding inward...this time of year for us is about gratitude, reflection and pondering/pausing. 
Taking stock of the year that's gone by, and visualizing what's in store for the year ahead.

We're still writing,  and still visualizing the upcoming records...the path is still foggy for the how/when details.  No worry, no hurry.

A few upcoming shows are on the books, and as always, we're delighted to be invited for your house concert…

Playing Catch Up 

The last couple of months we've been playing catch up.  The time has flown by, and yet in certain ways, we're feeling like we haven't done very much.  That's the challenge and the balance as an artist; to keep the wheels spinning, the engine running, the canvas creating, the shows playing, all while trying to make rent. 

We're doing the best we can with what we've got.  I know you all are in the same boat in your own way, and probably feel like your time is stacked...like every minute of the day is…

We wouldn't trade it.
