Life of the...LOCAL CELEBRITY!

Greetings! We just released a new surprise single on Don Giovanni Records, "LOCAL CELEBRITY" b/w "WHEN YOU WERE 25". Very happy to release another record on the same label who put out our first LP, Hard Life! Greenway Records will be releasing both songs on vinyl and those will be available this winter.


You can download the two new songs on iTunes,
and stream them on Spotify.

And along with the new song is a new music video by my old friend Brendan Mcknight, who also directed the video for "THE SUN STILL SHINES."




We are hard at work on a new LP which will be out next year, so no shows for a little bit. 
See you soon!
