Last preview before the release and release show tomorrow night, 9pm at the @wynwoodyard! 'Runaway' is probably the biggest departure from anything we've recorded before. We let Adam (@crackfox87) let loose and lead the way with his insane in-your-face electric rig. Definitely one of our favorites to play live.

Regarding the song, it was inspired by the ethical and humanitarian failures of our administration regarding the treatment of immigrant children in child detention centers. Although the news cycle has grown somewhat bored of the issue after the initial outrage last year, it is still ongoing, and in our backyard - the largest remaining center is here in Homestead, and has already been expanded twice in 2019, now holding over 3,200 children, more than Homestead High School. It's run by a for-profit organization who has admitted that business is booming due to our current administration's immigration policies. I encourage you to look into how this situation is still developing. While immigration policy is a tough, multifaceted issue to solve, I hope we can all agree that these children are not at fault, and should be treated humanely and released to their sponsoring families as expediently as possible. We're all in this together.

'Hold on to Me' is the single representing 'Take My Body', the more folk-centered, intimate, confessional side of the double-album project. Can't wait to share the rest of the 14 songs (7 on each side) with you all this June. Thank you so much for supporting us all this time, our love goes out to you all!
**Click for audio for a preview!** This Friday at the @wynwoodyard y'all! One of our last two shows at our home! 🍻🎉🤘 This is a first peek of 'Runaway', one of the two singles we'll be releasing in anticipation of the full release of 'Terra Nova / Take My Body', our two-sided project, in June. Hope you like it!

@bayclubmiami tonight! 8:30-11:30. My cousins @shiawassee_music will be sitting in with me for a set for some lovely folk harmonies. Should be fun!
Hello my friends! It's single release time!

I'm beyond excited to start showing you the new music we've been hard at work creating since last summer. We're set to release an epic two-part studio project, 'Terra Nova / Take My Body', this June, and I can honestly say I'm really happy with how it turned out.

First up, we're celebrating the release of the first two singles - one from each side of the double album - on April 12th at the @wynwoodyard with a big ol' free show for everyone who's been there for us these past few years. We'll be doing two sets starting right at 9pm, we'd love to see you there!
Fun little run of shows this week!

This Friday! Come see us team up with the incredible young talents of @thechildrensvoice chorus as we spend a night together celebrating folk music. We'll do our own full band set as well as joining in with the CVC kids and young adults on some tunes they've been preparing. Should be different, should be fun :) I also can't express how beautiful the #BanyanBowl is and how good it sounds in there, gotta come see + hear it for yourself! Doors at 7pm, show starts at 7:30. 🤘🎉😜
Check out @officialjazzyrose channeling her inner Adele singing "Make You Feel My Love" - and get ready to hear her and a bunch of other talented singers from @thechildrensvoice chorus at our collaborative folk concert next Friday, Feb. 22nd at the beautiful @pinecrest_gardens 'Banyan Bowl' amphitheater! We'll be playing our own set as well as joining in on their tunes. Gonna be fun and different, come on out!
Thank you to all our friends for showing up for us last night at the @historicbarnacle. You all were the most respectful and supportive audience I've had the pleasure to play for - we felt the love! Thank you for the strength and encouragement, it meant the world to me. See you all again soon! 📷: @suzaraflores
Tonight y'all! Feeling good about it :) bring your own blankets, chairs, picnic and beverages of choice!
That's a lot of stage for just a dude and his guitar 🤷🏻‍♂️
