We will have a Kickstarter page up shortly with lots of wonderful ways to earn a personalized gift in exchange for supporting us. Our next CD project is our main focus this summer. The Spring was filled with teaching at Cerritos College, Cypress College, Green Brooms, Bellflower Music Center, Morey’s Music, and The Music Lab…Yes, we have a lot of jobs! Now on to a summer of being artists again!


03/21 – We just had our second NPR interview (the first was on KUHA 91.7 “The Front Row” in Houston last year) with Kevin Kelley on his show “Live and Local” on WillFM 90.9 Illinois Public Media. We will post a link when it is up. Kevin was lovely to chat with and we hope you get a chance to check it out. We are off tomorrow to Missouri and Illinois for our fifth stint to the Midwest, so if you live in the area, we hope to see you out on the road!
