Biography

We know your times important so we'll try to make this short and sweet. We've been together for eight years and became what we would call a serious band about six years ago. A nearly fatal car accident with the band changed the way we went about things. Since then we have focused on writing original music, personally funded the recording of three cd's, and put everything we make back into the band. We haven't always made the best business decisions, or even the best music in the past; however, our new cd has some of the best music you haven't heard. So take a few minutes and check out the songs on the EPK and you can decide for yourself. Given, the best thing to happen to music since .........
