Think of a rustic cabin where the roots of the writing were born. Then you open the doors of the cabin and step out to a busy city street, where lights are flashing and you just feel like in a matter of minutes, you've just experienced the best of both worlds.

Vocalist/guitarist Dave Dribbon, vocalist/mandolinist Jeff Honeycutt and lap steel/banjo/guitarist Randy Dzielak are the songwriters. Their songs are Indie/Americana/Rock. With strong vocals/harmonies and a dynamic but sometimes...
