CHECK OUT OUR LATEST : SINGLES 2020

OUR SINGLES 2020 CAMPAIGN CONTINUES! We certainly hope you are staying positive this holiday season. What a year it has been. We're ready to see it disappear for good! Our last single for 2020 is here and it's a bit of a departure in tone and style. "Closer to the Win" founds its way into our lives over a year ago. It was originally written as a sort of throwback to early 60's soul and we were unsure what to do with the song. We started by performing it often on the road, playing it to see how our audience would react. The message is very personal in many ways, and we weren't sure if it was "getting through" and touching people. We then decided (late last year) to enlist our talented friend, drummer/producer Max Bauhof to produce and help capture a vintage tone and setting. The song twisted and turned as we added more texture with Jim Alfredson playing mellotron strings, vibes, organ, pianet and piano. Jeff Powe added his bass and backing vocals and the recording took on it's own lifeform. We finally feel pleased with the outcome and present it to you below. Official release date 12-31-20, that's right...New Years Eve. Check it out and stay tuned for MORE music coming your way as we prepare new material for 2021!

2021: Pushing our Motor City Soul forward 

Happy New Year friends!

Our singles campaign has taken on a whole new chapter entering into 2021. A lot of exciting things are happening for us, despite the fact that we're still stuck in the house, and unable to tour. Thankfully, we're resourceful and had made a plan to continue writing, recording and releasing new music during this down time. While we were considering our next song to release, a spark turned into a flame with our latest single "Closer to the Win". The overwhelmingly positive response has opened up new and exciting opportunities for us, and we're just now trying to navigate what's in front of us. 

First, our latest video for "Closer to the Win" currently has over 220,000 views on Facebook! We know this isn't the most accurate measure of success, but it certainly has grown awareness for our music throughout the world. A huge THANK YOU to all of our friends and fans who have tuned in, taken the time to listen, and share the music. Together we've grown our audience to include Italy, Spain, France, U.K. and other parts of the globe exponentially...bravo! 

We've also received a tremendous amount of radio airplay internationally and want to thank our DJ friends and family, unbelievable! Keep up the good work of supporting independent music! Needless to say we are truly stunned by the amount of spins we've been getting, and are looking forward to getting BACK TO THE STAGE where we belong, and can bring our show to your area.

Because of this rapid growth, we are pleased to let you know we have secured a deal with U.K. based soul label LRK Records to press and release a special limited-edition 7" vinyl 45 of "Closer to the Win" and "If I Can't Have You" !!  What's so thrilling about the news is this will be the VERY FIRST record deal we have ever been involved in. Funny as it may seem, we have always tried to put our music out ourselves! This is a new and exciting time for us, and we will keep you posted on the release date. Due to the pandemic, and the increasing popularity of vinyl, a Summer 2021 release is our best guess. Pre-orders will be posted soon, along with a link to order yours! Yeah!!!

Once again, hang in there...we're going to make it! Hold onto your loved ones, spread the love and affection, stay healthy, wash your hands, and please...wear a mask! While you're at it, get out your old records and give 'em a spin...they can take you places in your imagination, and here on earth!

-George and Laura
