Signs of Life

We’ve been bunkered down in the trenches of a few different studios & we’re stoked to announce that the album (tentatively titled Thief & Love) is taking shape nicely!  In a musical landscape that can arguably be described as the Great American Folk Revival, I couldn’t be more proud that this a guitar-driven record…lots of guitars.  Below is a small clip from our most recent foray into Soul Haven Studios with Brandon Bower turning the dials.  The song is our newest and is titled, Moving On (lyrics below).  Also, we’ll be unveiling dates soon for a run of shows this spring; can’t wait to share these songs & have something for you to take home!

Moving On

Wes Gow ©

Do you know that sailor tied onto the boat
His life raft crumbled in the wake of the storm
And if we try to pull him in we’ll never make it to port
Go cut the rope.
Oh, we’re moving on.

A house of cards without a joker in the deck
This town tips their hats to the guys with the tricks.
And however far we go I’ve made my peace
There will be no homecoming shows.
Oh, we’re moving on.

Cut the anchor chain and get in
Raise the sail up to the wind
And chart course into the dawn
Oh, we’re moving on

That twisted tongue that always whispers in my ear
He doesn’t raise his voice because he knows I want to hear
And that garrison I’m hiding in of questions & fear
I’m burnin’ it to ashes & smoke
Oh, I’m moving on.

If that horse you brought to water doesn’t ever take a drink
And that mocking bird you bought doesn’t ever want to sing
That golden calf didn’t usher in your dreams
Then what choice have you got than to let that creature be?
