The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


…”Just the Facts, Ma’am”...

Gary hails from Atlanta, Ga, and Martha was born and resided in Nashville, TN until 3 years ago, when the two moved back to Atlanta. 

Gary started playing guitar and writing music when he was 12.  He performed with cover bands and then as a solo act across Georgia and portions of the Southeast for the past “many” years (!)  He owned and operated Limited Access Studios in the early to mid-2000s.

Martha was a classical pianist at age 8, winning accolades and awards and a number of piano auditions.  She sang in the shower, the car, and church choir until meeting Gary, at which point she began taking voice lessons and performing live.  Her clear, cherubic voice will send you soaring and having you state that you “could listen to her all night,” according to one fan at the famed Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA.

What We ARE:

Performing singer/songwriters


Way out on the edge of creativity

Against being pigeonholed into a genre

Nerds incognito

Easy to listen to, easy to talk to


What We Are NOT:



John and Yoko on steroids

So, what do you get when you combine a “gravel-y” Southern rocker with a classically-trained soprano? You get a really unique blend of musical texture that defies genre.  Gary has been compared to Dylan, Lennon, Springsteen, Skynard and The Allman Brothers and even The Mamas and the Papas, and Martha, to the likes of Allison Krauss, Judy Collins, Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Sara Evans and Mary Travers.  Our original music settles somewhere in the middle, having been compared to Little River Band, Seals & Crofts, Lady Antebellum, – but not exactly.   Our music has been compared to: Hippie Pop,Posi, Country, Americana, Alt-Folk, Rock, and/or Rockabilly.

Everyone wants to know what kind of music we play, you know, like Charades:  “sounds like...”. And while we play all types of covers ranging from Alabama to ZZ Top and pretty much everything in between, the performing singer/songwriter in us calls our original material “heartfelt acoustic.”  “Presto change-o, look Ma, we made our own genre!”  There is something earthy, gritty and authentic about our music that is very difficult to describe, even after hearing it.

One fan said:

“I'm sitting here at my computer at 10:30 on a Sunday watching a favorite show after a REALLY busy weekend but I can't stop singing ‘Thrive’ in my head - true story. … You bring something unique and beautiful and I was grateful to be there...”

We're working on our CD, on which you’ll hear top studio musicians making cameo appearances (we will not namedrop here)!  The currently half-completed record has many different sounds, with no two songs being alike, but all having a very positive message.  

We are featured on Unity Radio and EmPower Radio (LIVE365).

Members, ASCAP (Gary since 2000, Martha since 2009).

Members, NSAI, Nashville.

A Few More Interesting Tidbits

We play well with others, color outside the lines, run with scissors, and dance when no one is watching (but how would we know that??)

We like to camp, travel, write, meditate, garden, grill, walk the dachshund (which means carrying), make up silly names for bird calls and further explore Metaphysics and Quantum Physics.

When we are in a hurry to watch paint dry, we buy water-based.

But seriously…

Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of those who cross our path.  Music is our drug of choice…we want it to be yours.

Our lyrics are intelligent and the feelings evoked by our songs are varied.
