06.24.2020 Wow! It's been a while since we posted any news, and for the last 3 months, we've had concerts and tours canceled, live every other musician on the planet. We have been enjoying a lot of time at our respective homes, where we've collaborated on a couple of remote recording and video projects. Here are the thumbnails of what we've been up to (more details on our Media page), and please check back for updates on our rescheduled concerts and some additional ones for next season. We look forward to seeing you all in person asap! :)

07.04.18 We received this lovely review of our album from Jillian DeGroot at I CARE IF YOU LISTEN. Thank you!

"Sonic embodiment of personhood; aggressive and virtuosic prowess; thoughtfully crafted and beautifully executed; brilliance of sound, technical mastery, and stunning expressivity."
