Offbeat Review and French Quarter Fest! 

Big, huge thanks to OffBeat Magazine and Robert Fontenot for taking the time to listen to and review Spark for the March edition of Offbeat Magazine!
It’s one of the most thoughtful reviews we’ve ever received and we’re tickled and honored to be included in our hometown music mag.

We're also super excited to share that we're playing FRENCH QUARTER FEST for the first time!!
Mark your calendars for SAT. APRIL 13TH - 4PM at Big Mama's Lounge - 229 Decatur (next to House of Blues!)

As always, you can follow us…

Happy New Year! 

Hello Friends and Happy New Year! 

We're so grateful for the epic year that was 2018 for us, and you all helped make it possible. 
25K miles, and a full year of shows, including many new states and places we'd not yet been; 
a new DRR record; NCIS: New Orleans TV appearance and song placement; 
Melissa played her first Bass guitar gigs; Matthew continues playing with Shawn Williams (who is nominated for two Offbeat Awards here in New Orleans!) 

One day at a time, we keep truckin' down the path, our heads…

THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

Dear friends, 

We wanted to extend our deepest gratitude and love to everyone that made it out to our CD release party at Portside Lounge last Thursday, and to everyone that couldn't make it but sent their best wishes for a successful show! 

Playing music means the world to us, and sharing it with a room full of friends is all the more special. 

By all accounts, it was a successful show, due in great part to the efforts of our good friend Shannon Elizabeth Shephard who spent hours with Melissa in…

Upcoming local shows plus Record Release Party! 

We've been back from our epic tour a few weeks now, getting ourselves re-acclimated and hydrated in the sultry late-summer vibes of New Orleans.
2 months, 15 Western states, 13,000 miles.  Absoul-lutely. Wonderful. Adventure.  Much love and gratitude to all of our friends and family new and seasoned. 
Whether or not you're on Instagram, you can view our photo feed here and connect with our adventures.

Now that we're back home, we're back to the books (booking) and re-visiting with our upcoming Spark album!

New Radio Show! New Year! New Adventures! 

2018 has snuck up on us, and brought extreme cold (at least for us and what we're used to!).  Freezing temps are not the norm for our winter vibes.

This past year felt full of starts and stalls.  So many dreams and ideas we ponder and come up with...just seem to evaporate almost out of the starting gate.  I'll admit, it's difficult sometimes to be both the creator and the manager and activator/motivator.  And sometimes, it's just not the right time yet for an idea to fully manifest.  So with patience and…
