Hey folks! We hope you're doing well. There's snow in Calgary now... but it's brought with it a fresh breath of productivity! We recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Karl Magi for a feature on his Canadian Folk Band Profile blog. It's one of the more in-depth interviews we've done so far, and we talked all about our touring endeavours, running a music business, and how family is very important to us. It was a lot of fun and if you like reading, we hope you'll take a peek for yourself. See the full interview by clicking HERE.
We were recently awarded tour funding from the SOCAN Foundation to help cover some of the expenses we faced on western Canadian tour this summer. We're thrilled about their support because touring Canada sure ain't cheap, and once you factor in the cost of fuel and BC ferries, it's just downright expensive! Thank you SOCAN Foundation for helping us pursue our dreams!
Next week we'll be hunkering down for a very important project: a 12-week self-imposed songwriting residency. It'll be the first time in our lives where we'll be spending regular, dedicated time honing our craft and focusing on writing new material. In a lot of ways I (Joal) think I'm a little scared as an artist that we won't have anything worthwhile to share, so I would greatly appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement for artist inspiration and creativity.
#tbt to earlier this year when we were #jamming in #rotterdam #netherlands with this #groovy couple. Pretty #funky for #folkies eh?
