TOURING & RECORDING HISTORY

JULY 2016 to August 2019 - TMC records 21 NEW SONGS

The band records 21 new songs. After a lot of planning and pre-production, the band chooses to record at Private Ear Recording for a third time in a row. The effort is again co-produced by John Paul Peters & Eric Labossiere. As a new addition, Guy Abraham records on 14 out of the 21 songs (backing vocals, piano). Once the record is done, Guy is announced as the band's new and 5th member. The record includes several notable guest appearances: Erin Propp sings on 3 of the songs and Jamie Lillie sings on 2 of the songs. Other known artists like Bill Western (lapsteel), Emma Quackenbush (cello), John Paul Peters (violin, guitar, backing vocals) & Rayannah (piano) also contribute to the recordings.

2015 - VIDEO released for "Ride In Your Mind" - "THE SPIDERS WE EAT" EP (CLICK to watch)

MAY 2014, the band records a 5-song EP. This EP is also recorded at Private Ear Recording with John Paul Peters. Though the EP receives good early reviews, the band never tours in support of the effort due to internal personal matters. However, they do release a studio-based video in support of the record's most highly-touted song: "Ride In Your Mind." The video includes actual footage of the band tracking the song.
