New Release December 20, 2022 

Exciting news: We're about to release two new tunes on December 20. They will be available here on our website as well as the usual suite of online music store and streaming sites. Ultimately we will release songs as they become ready, culminating in a full album compilation around mid summer. Expect new videos to also be forthcoming. Feel free to like, share, subscribe etc on social media / YouTube in order to spread the word and help us out. Thank you, as always, for your support. 

We're Back 

First Amanda had a baby (a very good thing), then Jeff was diagnosed with bladder cancer (a bad thing), then the Covid pandemic hit (another bad thing).  The end result was that after the release of our third album we were not able to have a release concert and haven't performed live for a long time.

The good news is that Jeff has been cancer free and has been writing enough material for a fourth album which will be out by 2023. The band, with a mix of old faces and some new ones, has been rehearsing and recording and we will update you on any song releases and public performances that may happen in the near future. 

We will be reentering the world of social media so look for us on Twitter and Facebook. Hope to see you there.

 

 

September 2020 Update 

Hi Folks 

Exciting times as it has now been a little over a month since the release of the "Imperfection" album. We have since released it in vinyl, which is exciting. If you want a CD, vinyl or a download and haven't got it yet please let me know. If you have and like our music feel free to spread the word. That is always appreciated. 

Reviews have been very positive:

Grid City Magazine Review by Matt Carter 

Atlantic Axess Interview with Terry Parker 

fred-e-scene review by David MacCoubrey 

CBC Shift Interview 

Note that the previously released Miracle Man remains our most popular video at close to 3.4k views and most streamed song on Spotify with over 2k streams. Silence is another song that has done well, being named video of the week on the International Indie Site Music Talks, and song of the week on Belter Radio in the UK. 

In other news we have discontinued our relationship and page on Facebook. Over the years the platform has become less and less effective as a means to communicate with and engage followers. Posts that a few years ago would reach hundreds of people now often reach less than 100 and if there is higher engagement we get invited to pay to boost a post to reach more people. Our revenue stream is not enough to make it cost effective. Couple that with a series of scandals and bad press (no I don't wear a tinfoil hat ) and I felt it was time to leave. For now we remain available on TwitterInstagram and our website and you can always reach out via email. We also maintain a presence on Bandcamp

That's all I have for now and best wishes to all.

Imperfection Album is Out 

Today we released our third full-length album and we are thrilled.

You can order downloads from our music page or our store and it is available at the usual suspect music sites like Bandcamp and also streamable on Spotify

If you want a hardcopy CD you can also order it from our webpage. Contact us directly if you are closer to the Fredericton area and we can deliver and save on shipping charges. It is also available at Backstreet Records in Fredericton.

A huge thanks also to fred-e-scene for a most wonderful review and article. Wowza!!!

"Imperfection" Album Release Date 

Happy New Music Friday everyone. No new music for us this Friday but soon it will be our turn.

Friday August 7 is our planned release date for the new "Imperfection" album. This will be our third full length album and we are stoked about it. Downloads from our website and the usual suspect places will be available then. Hard copy CD will also be available for $20 CAD (plus shipping if outside the Fredericton area). Check out the awesome album cover designed by Joshua Sangster (who happens to sing lead on 5 of 11 songs). Among the menagerie of characters are all the contributors to the album, plus an assortment of friends including health care workers from the Miracle Man video. Hovering over us all is our East Yorkshire dragon wizard Adrian Jenkinson who mixed and mastered the album.

Another New Single 

Here we go with the release of another single.

A song for the times we are in. Our original plan was to hold off on more releases until the full album was ready for distribution. The band consensus was that it would be timely to release it, so here we are.

The song is called Silence and the video is up on YouTube.

As always, Peace and Love to all.

 

Jeff

 

New Single Released 

Our latest single "Imperfection" is now available and the video is up on YouTube. This song is the title track for our next album and you can now also pre-order the album for download or CD.

Add this to a second consecutive cancer-free set of tests and that means this has been a very fine week!

As always, Peace and Love to everyone and best wishes for staying healthy and safe.

Jeff

 

New Album On The Way 

I am happy to announce that all our tracks for the next album have now been sent to the studio for mixing and mastering. Expectations are that we will be able to release the album by late summer or fall of 2020. Stay tuned for a specific release date, and we will also be set up and advise you regarding pre-orders within the next month or so. Thanks, as always for your support.

As with everyone else we are navigating through the Covid-19 pandemic situation and pleased to announce that we are all keeping well so far. Best wishes to all of you out there also. Health-wise my last biopsy had a good result so things looking as good as possible with that. Thank you for your expressions of support and concern.
