The sound the band creates is a sophisticated blend of Americana, Alt. Country, Indie rock, and latin Jazz. The songs are tastefully structured and radio ready, but written with enough room to breathe in a live setting. This allows the players to showcase their individual talents and create a truly dynamic show for audiences worldwide.
The goal of the band is to write great songs to record and perform live. With over one hundred recording credits each the band is no stranger to the studio. In addition, members of the band have appeared at many major festivals from the east coast to the west coast of the U.S. as well as internationally in countries such as Germany, India, Holland, Mexico, and Japan. All the members have performed at a number of music venues across the U.S. and gained large fan bases respectively.
