Man does it feel good to be back in the van. Everyone else is sleeping–our first show is in Pittsburgh so that meant an early call time and a long day of driving. I’m enjoying it though: Levon Helm’s Dirt Farmer is on the speakers as the never ending Ohio scenery rolls by. Our heartsMORE
Norah Jones started massaging our ears 10 years ago with Come Away With Me. Since then she’s gone in some cool directions with her music and hasn’t let the success of her first record box her in to a particular sound. Her new record …Little Broken Hearts drops May 1 and is streaming on NPRMORE

The new Lee Fields record is out and it’s a scorcher. Don’t believe me? Check this song out.
We don’t get as many opportunities as we’d like to help out folks in need with our music, but next Thursday we get to do exactly that. Ari Guha (a friend of Brendan’s from college) is faced with Stage IV colon cancer and medical bankruptcy. His insurance company decided to stop paying the bills afterMORE
“My kinda soul is just a little bit greasy” ~Allen Stone I wish I could say that I’ve been following this guy for years, but truth is I just got acquainted with Allen’s stuff a few months ago. Even in that short amount of time, I’m seeing a ton of exciting things happening for thisMORE
