This summer has been rolling by so quickly, as it is known to do, and we've had quite the line up of shows. We started May with another incredible night at Mary's Place, alongside our good friends Zach Pietrini, and Startlite Radio! We didn't do full band this time around.... just our usual duo :) Since then, we've played at Rural on Tap (our very own "Cheers"!), Concerts on the Creek, Neighbor's...

In February, we did another CD release show. This time, though, it included our live acoustic EP, "The Littlebeck Sessions". This was recorded last Fall, with the help of our buddy from Starlite Radio, Jordan McDonald, who recorded, mixed, and mastered the whole thing! It was fun to record it the way we play live... a completely different process, that's for sure!  

 

Okay... back to the show!

As we sit and think about a new year being upon us, I think it's natural ponder what hopes and goals we have for 2016.  Here's a look at what we are hoping for this year:

 

We are going to start writing new songs soon, which will eventually result in our second album.  We would like to get new videos added to our YouTube channel (so you should go subscribe to our channel in order to keep u...

Well, hello there!  We haven't blogged in over a month! That goes to show how busy our Summer has been... which is great! So, what have we been up to?  We've been playing around 2 gigs a week -- sometimes more, sometimes less.  We played at the Rockford City Market at the beginning of Summer, which is always a TON of fun. Dinner on the Dock (at the Prairie Street Brewhouse) was our secon...

After many months of working on our debut album, we finally had them in our hands the first week of June!  It was in that surreal moment when we realized we had created something that would live on in this world far beyond we ever would. We've left our print on the music world! We wanted to celebrate that great feat with our friends and fans. So... we had a party! On Friday, June 19th, we had a CD...

A couple weeks ago we played our first show together in sweet home Chicago! It was a slightly dreary Sunday afternoon when we piled into a van, picked up our buddy Andrew Robinson, and headed into the city to play at Uncommon Ground. This was our second weekend in a row that we played outside of Rockford, so we were pretty pumped. Andrew Robinson is a fellow Rockford musician that was booked along...

Back in January, we received a message from a gal in Westmont, IL, wanting to book us at a venue called The Commons.  A real show. A 45-minute set opening up for another band. We were ecstatic! We asked her how she found us, and she said she came across us on the internet... wow!  So we said yes, of course. She then went on to ask for a performance agreement and rider.  Yes, a ride...

We are finished with recording!  Let's take a moment to let that soak in.  

 

Here's what that looks like:

We first met with Micky the end of July 2014 to talk about recording.  We kicked off our album campaign in September, and we were fully funded by March (woo hoo!). Our first recording session was November 9th.  We had 18 recording sessions over the next (almost) 6 months.  Each s...

This past weekend we were able to play at another great local winery!  We were at DC Estate, in South Beloit, Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day... a bit too windy for us to play outside, which we had hoped to do, but that's ok :) Our favorite wine is the DC Meritage -- a dry blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It's very tasty! The tasting room had great acoustics, whic...
