What have you been up to?
We have been touring some, playing at Venues within and outside the state of Colorado, working in the studio to create new music for release, and working on a new project to work with the elderly and youth using music as a tool to do so.
Any creative risks you have taken lately that have paid off?
We recently started a project where we go into schools and work with students on creating music. We have also created a project to work with the elderly in their communities.
What would you like to master when it comes to your music?
I would like to master the art of playing several instruments in our sets to create versatility.
Can you take us into the music-making of your new music?
The music we are creating currently has a social justice vibe to it. It has the feel of looking back as well as forward with our lives and how we live them.
Less is more or more is more when it comes to your music?
More is more when it comes to our music. We are singers/songwriter but we also believe in creating new material so we can continue to capture our audience with depth.
Any hidden meanings in your music you'd like to share?
Our music right now that we are right is about perception and really looking at the world from a different viewpoint than we usually take. We want people to really stop and notice the world and the people within this world
Any predictions about your career for next year?
We will be playing at several festivals this next year and will be taking the steps to move up and forward in not only our venues but the music we produced.
Is there a dream goal you are daydreaming about?
Angela eventually wants to tour across the country, have a couple of hit songs, and have one of the best studios run by a female in the country. Steve wants to continue playing and creating authentic music giving voice to the voiceless.
