Greetings from Boise Idaho

Taking a day to catch up on day off in Boise Idaho. The last week and a half on tour with Ingrid Michaelson and Storyman have been nothing short of amazing. Getting to play songs from our new album in front of sold out crowds every night is easily one of the best times we have ever had.  Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, and Oakland still to come. Then we part ways and head to LA to play our own show in Los Angeles at the Hotel Cafe. Well back to work, but sometimes its nice to stop and appreciate something while you are still in the middle of it. See you soon AR

Live In the Vineyard

I just wanted to take a second and say a huge thank you to Claire Parr and Bobbii Hach-Jacobs for an amazing weekend at Live In the Vineyard. It was a fantastic event and we are grateful to have been a part of. The opportunity to meet and play with artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Passenger, O.A.R, Fitz and Tantrums, L.P. and Mary Lambert (just to name a few!!) was an experience we will never forget. Nothing makes you want to step up your game more than being in the presence of truly great artists. And that is exactly where we found ourselves this weekend.

And those were just the official shows! So much of what makes this event special is the stuff that happens off the clock.  A weekend full of great people, music, and the wine wasn’t so bad either.

 

Thanks

Nothing More Featuring Reed Intermediate School

Thanks to Mrs. Tannenbaum and the 5th and 6th graders at Reed Intermediate School in Newtown CT for learning Nothing More and inviting us to come play with them. Here is a recording of the performance. You guys sound fantastic!!

 

Nothing More the most added song in the country on the Triple A BDS Indicator chart

We continue to be amazed by the support we are receiving for Nothing More. So far over 25 radio stations across the country have added it to their playlists. This week Nothing More was the most added song in the country on the Triple A BDS Indicator chart. We know thats a lot of jargon, but its a very good thing! Please keep spreading the word and we will do the same.
