We’ve spent the last several months recording and producing a new record that we are tremendously excited to release into the world. This album, “Pretty Little Secrets,” is the record we’ve always wanted to make. For those of you following us from the beginning, this will serve as a delightful follow-up to our first release in 2010, when everything was energy and frantic fire. We’ve explored a lot, musically and personally, in this last almost-decade, and we’re coming to this release feeling very…Read more
Hello and cheers to you, friends. We hope you are doing so well.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec, 15th at 9pm: it's our BIG HOLIDAY PARTY, our last show for the year, and we're doing a clothing drive for Houston's homeless!! We'll be at Chelsea Wine Bar - so clean out your closet, bring a bag of clothes to donate, and let's all pull together to help some folks and have a damn good time doing it. The best kind of rock n roll is that which unites us, and helps others in the process.

As 2018 dawns we find ourselves in the studio, working hard to record our next album. This one's a bit different from previous efforts, so we wanted to let you know where we're coming from, and where we're going. After all, you are so important to us. We sincerely appreciate the fact that we can share our artistic creations with you, every chance we get. Without you, as Rebecca says, we're just playing for the cats!
In 2017, we recorded and released 'Road to Brownwood'. This album paid homage to the folk…Read more
Served at our wedding, here is the recipe we used.
1 bottle reposado tequila (we use El Jimador)

Cut and juice as many limes and…Read more

So y'all probably know we're getting married...and we can't wait!! Here's the story of our proposal, and it really does involve the cops being called, a moonshine toast, and a groundhog.
How we got engaged
We had just finished our first national tour through the Midwest, rounding it out in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The day after our very last show, we checked into a cozy little B&B that we have stayed in each time we've visited Eureka Springs. We wanted a day…Read more
I was driving in to work this morning, passively listening to Guy Clark, not feeling entirely “with it” due to a near sleepless night and the general ennui that’s become pretty inseparable from the 9 to 5 portion of my life these days. But traffic was light for once, and the music was good, so in relative terms, I could probably already consider today a success despite being only about an hour and a half into it.
While I’m sitting at my daily red light in the middle of downtown Houston, “L.A. Freeway”…Read more
We were walking through the wooded parking lot at the Texas Renaissance Festival not long ago, minding our steps through the bog as it had rained quite a bit the previous day. It was sunny this day though, and the world seemed alive, bright and full of life. People were dressed in every kind of eye-catching way, some in full Renaissance garb, some as pirates, some as various kinds of animals that I couldn't name, and some as if they were headed out to their backyard to yet again cut the grass as another…Read more
