New Music!!!! 

Hi Folks

May 1 is here and we have released new music. Three brand new songs and a reissue of the two songs we initially released in December 2022. One of these tunes is a live take from our February 25 gig which will ultimately make it onto a live vinyl LP we plan to release later this year. A video of the performance has also been released today. The other songs will ultimately make it onto our fourth full length studio album, also planned for release later in 2023.

New Music Out on May 1 

Hi folks

We will be releasing 5 songs on Monday May 1. All of the songs will be on our next studio album. In fact we plan two more major releases in 2023. One will be a live album from our February 25 gig at Fredericton's Grimross Taproom. Free to Grow (Live) will be available on the usual music sale and streaming sites as well as on a vinyl LP. Our next studio album (Along for the Ride) will be released as a CD and will also be available on all your favourite music sites. Both will feature artwork by our very own talented Amanda L. Moss. It has been a long haul and we look forward to sharing the new material with you.

Peace and love




We Did It 

What fun we had on February 25. Our first time back live on stage since August of 2018. It has been quite a journey. We opened for our friends The Unheard at the Grimross Taproom with MRD Studios providing sound for Roots and Soul Music Promotions.

We played 11 of our songs in our set, including 8 newer songs which will be on our upcoming fourth album. We finished off our night with Miracle Man, our tribute to The UnHeard's Bruce Hughes. The place was full and the crowd was enthusiastic. Awesome time.

We posted a couple of videos on our Facebook page and we expect to post more in the coming weeks.


Peace and love



Back on Stage February 25 Hurray! 

More good news and we are very excited. Thanks to our friends The UnHeard we are playing live on February 25. They graciously invited us to open for them in what will be a fun night filled with original rock music. 

"The UnHeard return to be heard and Free to Grow will open for them in a special music event that will warm your bones and thrill your auditory senses with original rock & roll. Doors at 7 PM Show at 8 PM $15 adv / $20 at the door"

You can find the event on Facebook, on our website "Shows" page and advance tickets are available via eventbrite.

Thanks also to Roots and Soul Music Promotions  and Grimross Brewing Co.

Hope to see you there!

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: 

Jeff Liberty Review for CBC Saint John 

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. 

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.




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.
