West Michigan music critic John Sinkevics’ list of notable bands is a highlight of the end of year ratings hoopla. We’re happy to be among the selected.
We’ve just received confirmation that our new album is live on Spotify. This service is great for artists not only because we get exposed to music fans worldwide, but we also get paid for it! So stream our album a few times at work, or at the library, or on your next car trip and support independent music!
It’s official! Our new album “Simien the Whale” is available for download on iTunes worldwide in 4 continents (sorry Africa…we’re coming).

On Friday, November 23rd, Tory and Zach visited WYCE Studios in Grand Rapids for an interview. The independent radio station was celebrating its 25th anniversary later in the evening. Tory and station manager Kevin Murphy decided to commemorate the occasion with an impromptu version of Paul Simon’s “Graceland.”
Congratulations on 25 years WYCE!
Our Album Release Party is almost here and we are getting prepared for a great evening. Many of you saw our last music video Always Something Easier, and it was got so much response we decided to make another.
