As most of you are aware, we are in the midst of recording our second full-length album. The as-of-yet untitled project gets a bit closer every day and is already something that we know we will be thrilled to share with the wonderful group of people who have supported us thus far. So, after a few months of living inside of headphones-mixingtrackingmixingandretracking, we’re ready to play out. We have four really cool shows over the next couple of weeks, and we’d love to see everyone again. As a side note, both of these pictures were taken at the studio in January by our dear friend, Alison Pate.
Of all of the great shows coming up, we are particularly honored to have been invited to play this year’s Siren Nation tribute to Billie Holiday on April 21st at the Secret Society Lounge. For those not familiar, Siren Nation is a local arts organization that showcases and creates performance opportunities for women. They also host a phenomenal festival here in Portland every year. Obviously, Billie Holiday is a really special, even sacred, influence for us. This also a wonderful opportunity for the dudes to take pause and reflect on how very lucky we are to play with the beautiful and uniquely gifted Melissa Davaz. As a vocalist and musician, I have learned so much from her over the past five years. Mad Dog picked and arranged our full set list for the evening, and will lead the three Billie Holiday tunes that we’ll be playing.
