Other Songs / Covers: We have definitely grown and matured in our sound over the past years and our 2023 singles and upcoming album certainly showcase that. While most of our songs are originals, our full repertoire includes some covers including "Afro Blue" (in 3/4 - our own arrangement that morphs into "Footprints"), "Goodbye" (by Apparat - the theme song to the "Dark" series that features percussive and harmonic banjo), and "Heavy in Your Arms" by Florence & the Machine, and "They Don't Really Care About Us" by Michael Jackson (to be released in 2024).
New Songs: We are constantly writing and creating, and we'd love you to be part of that. Our 2023 album includes songs such as our "Colorado Burns" and "90 Days".
Goodbye This is one of our newest songs. The scratching, thumping, and harmonics throughout the song are all produced by the banjo!
Home This is a video we made after our first album was released in 2018 showcasing a more traditional use of mandolin and banjo.
