New shows / recording almost done

Apparently we all hibernated pretty hard during winter break. But we just woke up, and there is a ton of stuff in the works! We're talking band lineup additions, collaborations, merch, and all sorts of exciting stuff. More to come on that down the road, but for now, there are more exciting updates. Such as: two new shows booked, and the completion of the EP getting closer and closer! Check out our shows section of the site to learn about the Alberta Street Pub and Kelly's Olympian shows. As far as recording, it looks like 3 sessions left before mixing and mastering. IT'll be bittersweet... the studio is awesome. Especially the Rye Room. Matt Greco really has a knack for making a killer studio to make killer records in. Jen also put in some recording time on a new Jen Deale Music tune. Check out her facebook page to see updates on her process.
