On Friday, February 17th we will be playing at the Spring Jam™ Battle of the Bands at the Whole Music Club located at the University of Minnesota – Coffman Memorial Union – basement level! Doors open at 7:30 PM and we will be onstage at approximately 8:00 PM. Don’t forget to vote for us after your arrival. We look forward to seeing you and would love your support. It’s a long road to Spring Jam™ but your vote and support will allow us to play the big show that takes place on April 22! This event is open to the public and free! Ages 18+
Surprise! We are working on new music for our new, yet to be titled, EP to be released hopefully by the middle of 2017. After being in the studio with this project since the middle of 2016 the funds started drying up. Sadly, we have reached a point in the recording process where we now realize this progress may have to come to an end due to a lack of funds. We tried really hard to fund this ourselves and already put some good, hard earned money into it. It has come to a point where we need to swallow our pride and ask anyone who is able and willing to help us make new music!
We have set up a GoFundMe account to help this project move forward! We have seen many successful GoFundMe campaigns succeed and are confident we are making the right decision for our music and our great fans. To help make this a success it is extremely important to share on social media, email, word of mouth and if you are feeling extra ambitious we included a flyer for our campaign in a link below to hang at your local business. Please check out the GoFundMe link below for some more exciting details that we did not add in this post.
We will be sure to reward those who donate with an exclusive digital download or physical CD before release date, maybe even an exclusive invite to a listening party, or a free entry into our EP release show (still working on the details)!
We were excited to find out that “Newfound View” was featured in a Twin-Cities PBS show called MN Originalback in February. The video features Ernest Miller who alters his ceramic vessels and uses custom glazes, creating signature pieces that bridge modern and traditional design. You can check out or buy some of his work at http://www.ernestmiller.com/ as well as sign up for pottery classes. Check out the video and expect to see some cool pottery technique and listen for “Newfound View” at about 2:55.
Watch the animated music video by Emily Fritze for “Newfound View” below.
We know it’s a Thursday night. We know that you may have to work early Friday morning. The point is, maybe we don’t know anything and we will see you there as 3 bands come together on one stage to put on this free show with over 3 hours of music planned at The Amsterdam Bar and Hall. Full food menu. Full Bar.
