We are touring a lot now and are finding that our mix of sophisticated and poetic lyrics delivered with diverse instrumentation and great vocal blend really connects with our audiences. We find that those who are tired of Radiomusic of the Oldie or Newby variety are really tuning in to our sound! We specialize in award winning Singer-Songwriter fare sans the clichÃ© of introspection but with lots of experience. Sort of a Traditional with Modern swirl with exciting dashes of new ideas and delivery!
