Shake & Shudder

When your  lover leaves you in the dust like a lonely withered cactus in the desert. Why is love so is tough?  Because it makes you Shake n Shudder.

Dad and daughter sending voice notes across the country and tracking DIY in the basement- It’s a Texas blues inspired shuffle with a little San Antonio slide guitar! Check it

Cemetery Blues

Wasn't this our plan for Halloween?  What costume will I wear? I'll never run off to Hollywood.  I'm afraid of what everybody thinks. Who is going to bury me?  Is this it? Is that all there is . You might think this is the end . Our new video shows that it is just part if the journey.  Check it

“The cemetery is an open space among the ruins, covered in winter with violets and daisies. It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place.”  ” - Percy Bysshe Shelley

LA Blues

Our  fav stop was Death Valley, where we really lived it up after finding our show at the DV Oasis Lounge had been cancelled.  Enter Los Angeles, city of lights, the distractions are unbearable. Focus on the task: to break the curse, we must bring our sister home...our new video for LA Blues explains the mission. Check it 

It’s Hell, it’s Heaven: the amount you earn Determines if you play the harp or burn.” - Bertolt Brecht

Desert Blues

Well the curse has been cast. Our second challenge?  Travelling through any desert is a daunting task. It is just so damn hot. We did it though... waaater...wotar.....had to make it to our next show.  We  have just released this part of the  journey... our new video for our second track Desert Blues. Check it 

In the desert I saw a creature, naked, bestial, Who, squatting upon the ground, Held his heart in his hands, And ate of it. I said, "Is it good, friend?" “It is bitter—bitter,” he answered; “But I like it “Because it is bitter, “And because it is my heart.” - Stephen Crane

— 1895
