This all really just started out as a bucket-list venture.

Jay and I have been playing covers and co-writing songs together since 2002, 3 years pre-kids. We played privately for friends and family, even dabbled in home-recording, but have suffered seriously contagious cases of stage fright from the get-go. We turned down a few opportunities here and there because of fear. I hit 40 and was just like, "I am so DONE with being scared. Let's just DO this thing!"

We booked our first real, paid gig in December of 2012. The first couple gigs were pretty low-profile: we didn't know what was gonna happen "up there" (Would I lose my voice? Would Jay's hands freeze?) and didn't want to embarrass ourselves in front of all our friends. But it went pretty well. To quote my 7-year-old, "No one threw fruit at you, Mommy." And so we didn't make a big public (translate: Facebook and email everone!) announcement until the 3rd or 4th show. When a great big group showed up and rocked it out with us at our April 6, 2013 gig, we had a freakin' BLAST. People were dancing and singing along and having FUN. We love that.

And so our shtick is this: we are your neighbors, your friends from church, your children's friends' parents, your poker buddies, your Moms' Group pals, your whatever you need us to be. And maybe once a month or so, we want to get everybody we can all together to let loose, to remember and look back, to dream and look ahead, and to laugh and look around.

And our sound? Marrying memories of sitting at the kitchen table with AM radio blaring while my mom made breakfast, listening to everything from Debbie Harry to Anne Murray, to music all the way up to "what the kids wanna hear" Taylor Swift, Adele, Lumineers, Cee-lo, (!) well, that's a lot of music. Add in those now somewhat embarrassing '80s memories of Bon Jovi hair and Duran Duran posters. College and grad school brought singer-songwriters back into our lives with the advent of Jewel, Sarah McLachlin, and Cheryl Crow. And all through these years we are influenced by the 50s and 60s: Johnny Cash, The Beatles, on and on and on. (Jay is reading this over my shoulder and insists I add Led Zeppelin to this list.) Throw in a few of our originals and we'll call it a show.

Such a mix! For our generation, it is EXPECTED of us to artistically span the decades and to "do it all." Can we pull it off? Do we have a choice?
