What’s New

updated April 3, 2019

Introducing: The Early Risers!

After playing together for over three years, and tours that have taken us clear across the country, Ashley Storrow and I have finally taken things to the next level by starting to perform under our new duo name: The Early Risers.  Stay tuned for the new website, new shows, and….(drumroll please!)…a new album!

Kickstarter Fully Funded!

Actually, it gets even better: thanks to our fabulous Kickstarter backers,  we surpassed our goal of $8,000, and raised nearly $9,500!  Recording is now underway.  The tracking is nearly complete.  Now, it is on to editing, mixing, mastering, design and promotion.  Stay tuned!
