All original roots-rock band from Ottawa with local media attention and a growing fan base.


We are a committed original band from Ottawa about to record our 2nd CD with Terry Brown (Rush, Blue Rodeo, Joe Cocker) and Ken Friesen (Tragically Hip, Great Big Sea, Gordon Lightfoot)

Our goals are long term, and we have had a successful first year in 2009 with radio/newspaper/television exposure, as well as profile performances (Ottawa Bluesfest, etc) and plans to expand and tour in 2010-11. If you feel this is the style of music you would enjoy contributing, and are willing to do what is necessary to help us take this further - please contact us ASAP. Gigs are already booked in 2012.
