Reviews and Photos and Videos, oh my!

Photos by Robin Scully It's been three months since our last Cappsule post and I guess that's an indication as to how busy we've been. Between travel, day jobs, lots of performances and all the work that has gone into promoting this new little CD of ours, we've barely...

Now we wait! (Or not…)

Now we wait! (Or not…)

So what’s up with this new CD? You still have it as a Pre-sale on your website. Didn’t you just have a CD release concert? Can I get a copy now? Is it available on itunes or spotify?

Geez… so many questions. So here’s the short answer. Yes and No.

February, WTF Pre Sale & other cool things.

February, WTF Pre Sale & other cool things.

February is nearly over and while there's still plenty of snow on the ground our spring fever is primed and ready to kick in. The thin layer of ice dripping off the trees even resembles little buds that might be showing up in a month or so. Hard to say with our fickle...

The WTF Sessions Have Begun

The WTF Sessions Have Begun

Not what you're thinking. WTF = When They Fall. That's the title (at least for now) of our new CD that we've finally started recording! Interestingly enough, without any intention or planning, we've realized that every album of ours has a three word title. Not So Sure...

There’s Always Tomorrow

There’s Always Tomorrow

It's been 3 months since I've taken the time to blog about anything for our website. One of the other hats I'm wearing these days swallowed up my head and pushed all thought unrelated to it way far back into the recesses of my overwhelmed brain. The hat of which I...

Election Day 2018

Election Day 2018

Just got back from my little polling place - the fire station in Dexter Twp, Michigan. The turnout was nothing like 2016's Presidential election, but there was a line of well-behaved voters who had no idea which way the other would vote. We don't ask. We're not...

Voices Lost and Found

Voices Lost and Found

Thanks to Mike Ball and his Lost Voices organization, I have had the privilege of spending a week (on more than one occasion) adding music and sometimes melody to the powerful words of the phenomenal girls at Vista Maria who, at ages ranging from 12 - 17, have...

So Little Time…

So Little Time…

This time of year is always rife with emotions from blissfully happy to supremely sad, and everything in between. Rod and I have been talking a lot about time and how we want to spend what's left of ours. Not PLANNING on going anywhere but with so many friends leaving...

We've been performing our new song "This Little Apple" since January and recorded it back in March with the intention of dropping it with some sort of fanfare but really, we just want to get it out there. So by popular request you can stream the recording here or...

Gratitude and A New Band!

Gratitude and A New Band!

June was one of those months where every show exceeded our expectations (and not just because we've learned that it's best not to have any). Packed with amazing musical experiences, we just kept pinching ourselves when we looked around the stage at the incredible...

"In This Town" is 10 years old!!

"In This Town" is 10 years old!!

It's really hard to believe that 10 years have gone by since the release of our fifth recording "IN THIS TOWN"! For so many reasons this was a transitional album. Everything from what was happening in our personal lives to our professional lives influenced the...

Our Annual Trinity House Theatre Band Show!

Our Annual Trinity House Theatre Band Show!

If you don't know how much we love this venue, you may have missed a few things. First of all, we remember the very first time we performed at Trinity House Theatre was when we opened for the Tangerine Trousers, fronted by our friends, John & CJ Milroy.

Ringing out the old year!

Ringing out the old year!

At the time of this writing, there are only a few hours left of 2016. A year that many are looking back on with a mixture of "good riddance" and "can we please have a do over?!" A year with far too many losses in the arts and entertainment world at a time when we turn...

Little Tommy Saunders

Little Tommy Saunders

Like most other musicians who adore him Rod and I first crossed paths with Tommy Saunders because of the music. He along with his sidekick and best friend “nearly Normal” Warren were co-hosts of the Folk-it! Show that aired on this wonderful independent internet radio...
