Studio!

Hey Friends!

Yesterday we went into White Lake Studios to begin the recording process for our new album! We’re working with Alan Evans (Soulive) on this one, and things are going great! Alan has been adding some well needed “magic” to these songs and we are super excited to show them to you! He even laid down some “Wah Wah Watson” guitar tracks on our album! There will be some great photos and video footage released after we finish up.

We have already invested a great deal into this new adventure. We are asking for help from our fans on this one and have a kickstarter campaign going. There are only 2 days left to reach our goal. We would really appreciate it if you could click the link below and donate and SHARE this with everyone you know. Thank you all so much — we can’t do this without you!
