Invitation. This word is important to us. It's defined just about everything we do. We aspire to make music invitational in nature. Songs that can be a safe place of refuge and rest. Words and melodies acting together as a vehicle that can take us on an adventure to somewhere we've always wanted to go. A kind of "come and see" music.
In February of 2015, we invited our families, friends, and followers to participate in the creation of our first full-length studio album. We released it that August. To date, we've sold over 1,000 copies of it, and it's accumulated over 14 million streams on Spotify alone.
In 2016, we invited many of the same friends (and lots of new ones) to partner with us to put together the biggest tour we'd done thus far. That summer, we visited 16 states, played 30+ shows, and drove over 11,000 miles to all four corners of the United States.
In 2017, we invited even more folks to co-create our tour schedule. We visited lots of old friends, expanded our house-show-host family, and released new music throughout the year.
This year, we're sending out another invitation. We're setting some exciting goals, and we want to invite you to work with us to accomplish them by joining us on Patreon.
- Record and release our second album!
- Develop our online video content. We want to share the new music we're cooking up with you as often as we can, and having more live video content helps us book more shows.
- Get a travel van! (because we're getting a little cramped in the Honda Fit...)
- Work and create sustainably, even when we're not on the road playing shows
