We spent some time in Nashville recording some live videos and they will be released exclusively via Popmatters.com. Here is the title track of the album, Alive and Well.
We have been in the CBC Radio Top 20 for 5 weeks now and reached number8 in the charts!
Our song Against The Wall won the Independent Music Award for Americana Single!
“As soon as I heard the first track play, I was hooked, and the album has been part of my daily play list ever since. The world, and life in general, has been feeling pretty heavy lately (I’m guessing at least a few of you can relate!), but that weight just melts away when this music starts flowing.”
Our Canadian Tours were fabulous! Played a whole bunch of great venues and met a bunch of really stellar people. Just a couple of pics from the tour but go visit us at FB, Instagram or Twitter for all the pics along the way.
“Their music has the sparkle of pop, an edge of call-bullshit politics, the verve of danceable soft rock, and a whole lot going on in each track.”
““Unicorn” is a beautifully melodic track in the spirits of indie-folk. Its haunting vocals fill the audio to the brim, inviting listeners into a cozy, quaint, and powerful world it has crafted. The duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten demand attention and trust in perfect unison, a combination utterly contradicting, but perfectly understood in their delivery. Think The Lumineers or Mumford and Sons if either band was made up of your very best friends: that’s the sound and warmth that Austin and Otten are in full control of. While making an intriguing political track, they have succeeded in fostering a sound of contentment and familiarity.”
