Happy Spring!!

Just popping in to say Hi and tell you that while we aren't playing a ton of gigs over the next couple months we are busy little bees behind the scene. There's new video being produced, there are new songs being written and little tours being booked. This photo was...

18 Months Ago

This video (taken by Larry Wolfe) is from our last band show at Trinity House Theatre in September 2014! We're super happy to be returning with some new songs and special guest opener, Jon...

Why We Love House Concerts, pt 2

The first time at any venue is a bit scary, filled with unknowns and potential regret. House concerts come with their own set of unknowns but when the hosts are as genuinely friendly and enthusiastic about music as Joanne & Joe Smiddie-Brush and Phil & Carla...

Why We LOVE House Concerts!!

In May this past year we had the honor of performing at the Concerts at the Cabin's 100th House Concert. Being a part of this monumental event, which also happened to be the 10th anniversary of our first performance at Concerts at the Cabin, which was also our first...

another ending, another beginning…

Much as I LOVE this time of year for its promise of a fresh start and the hopefulness of accomplishing some of those things on my ever growing list, I also find it hard to fight the feelings of regret about all the things I DIDN'T accomplish last year. No matter... I...

West Side, East Side

Join us for the last two Capps concerts of 2015! (West) Salt of the Earth (Nov 15) and (East) Mama's Coffee House (Nov 21) The above photo was taken by Michael Hacala when we opened for Jill Jack a bunch of years ago (2008 maybe) at the Kensington Church concert...

Another one of the songs originally from our “Take Me To The Fair” EP, “Pretty Memories” is littered with metaphor and simile. It’s about moving on after the end of a seemingly brief relationship. It kicks off by likening the romance to a summer storm and a traveling...

Behind the Songs

Welcome to the first issue/episode of BTS (Behind the Songs). The idea of blogging about the songs on our new CD "Searching for Neverland" was not an original one. Far from it. I've seen this type of thing done by others - most recently Mary Gauthier - and it was her...

From the Archives

Found myself looking back at some old 'blog' posts that never made it to this newer version of our website and this one struck me as worth re-sharing. (I admit to having fixed more than a few typos) January 12, 2008 I found a sweet old book at our local antique store...

No Depression Review!

Great Review of "Searching For Neverland"

Review by Bill Keith (Booker of Trinity House Theatre and Radio Host) I knew it had been awhile since Annie and Rod Capps released a full length CD, but I had no idea that it had been six years. In between “My Blue Garden” and “Searching for Neverland” they released...

A Very Happy June

What a year!

It was this very time last year, sitting in the tiny living room of the townhouse at which we landed in early 2013 after an abrupt, radical and painful change in our life, when we decided to make another change - this time for the better. Don't get me wrong, the...

We're still here…

Well, so much for my goal of writing a new post at the top of every month. Life does present its share of interruptions doesn't it.  Funny enough, just as I typed those very words, I got interrupted. Don't even remember what it was, but that's the way things have been...
