UCLA Live w/ Margaret Atwood

some pretty cool happenings lately...

We'll be performing at Royce Hall on Oct. 9th as part of a special event with celebrated author Margaret Atwood! She'll be reading excerpts from her next novel "Year of the Flood" and we will be acting as a chorus of sorts, expanding upon the narration in song. An incredible musician named Orville Stoeber ( has composed 14 hymns, which in the book serve as poems that break up each chapter. We'll be performing 7 of these hymns along w/ Orville and some other great musicians. We'll also be performing in the New York performance of the show in late October. This is a huge honor & amazing opportunity for us - all involved are very excited.

Ms. Atwood even "tweeted" about it :) Woo!

Other exciting news includes a rapidly growing tour schedule!! Be sure to check in with to stay updated on our whereabouts!

ALSO! Just this morning we made the home page of thesixtyone in the new artists category. THANKS TO ALL THE LISTENERS - we are at 600something hearts. We heart you :) If you aren't familiar with thesixtyone, or "t61" as all the cool kids are apparently spelling it out, you should join...a fun, interactive way to discover, rate & share new music. There are so many crazy music sharing sites out there now...way to go first decade of the new millenium!

don't forget about our album release show @ hotel cafe on 9/15!
