about

"sounds like an amalgam of John Cougar Mellencamp and Steven Tyler after consuming a half-case of Bud Light Platinums and a carton of Camels at a stock-car race, (it) made me immediately pour myself a glass of bourbon—at 3 on a Tuesday afternoon. That's the mark of a perfect country-rock album; the title track shimmers.” SEATTLE WEEKLY REVIEW

"Their new full length album, "Pick Me Up," is so full of fresh raw energy combining the roots and elements of country, rock and blues they may have created a new genre you could call “Rocky Tonk.

A classic sonic akin to the Allman Brothers Meets the Black Crows. Definitely not your typical Seattle sound, which makes you wonder where they’ve been hiding.”

Track Name: Long Road
we started off in darkness, navigating by the stars, it weren’t until the sun rose up in the sky, that we find out where it is that we are, girl you know it’s been a long road, a long road, sad to say these streets aren’t paved in gold, this road is hard to travel, these burdens hard to bear, I know you put your trust in me, sometimes I wonder why you put it there, girl you know it’s been a long road, a long road, sad to say these streets aren’t paved in gold, yeah it’s been a long road, I’m glad you let me share your load and walk with you a while down this long road, a question called to order, a judgement sealed by a kiss, you see the tow of us been sentenced to this life and this is all that there really is, it’s a long long road, and there ain’t no doubt about it, in fact I’m gonna shout it, I’d do it all again, wouldn’t even know where to begin, without you there by my side, 'cause you know it’s been a long road, a long road, but who needs streets that are paved in gold, yeah you know it’s been a long road, I’m glad you let me share your load and walk with you a while down this long road
Track Name: Hole in the Sky
I’ve been thinking about jesus coming, old moses and the parting of the sea, been thinking about the way it is you’re running away from me, ever think about the stars above, if there were a god he’d be nothing but love, and love is that what we’ve got between you and me, ever wonder when it all began to change, maybe when we took a flyer on that hurricane, go on and try and count the reasons why, there’s a hole in the sky, there’s a hole in the sky, took a walk out in central park catching fireflies spinning pinwheel in the dark, kicking up my heels with these kids I met yesterday, I could tell by the way they was they were flat out loaded from the land of ahhs and ahh, I remember how it was those days, and ever wonder when it all began to change, maybe when we took a flyer on that hurricane, go on and try and count the reasons why, there’s a hole in the sky, there’s a hole in the sky, I had a dream about some buildings falling, a cloud of dust far as they eye could see, woke to hear the sound of sirens calling had it slip away from me, heard a prayer meant for the dead, took it to heart for myself instead, it said life don’t mean nothing without liberty, ever wonder when it all began to change, maybe when we took a flyer on that hurricane, go on and try and count the reasons why, there’s a hole in the sky, there’s a hole in the sky
