Comments

We have been recording since Jan/Feb 1999. We work as a husband/wife team and bring in vocalists to record our demos. We work primarily alone as a team, from writing our songs to making the demos. You can hear some of our music on our website. We are open to new ideas. We have come a long way in a year, but still have lots to learn, so we read and ask alot of questions.
