WE RELEASED OUR ALBUM!!
Officially released on the Autumnal Equinox, September 22, we are thrilled to finally share these songs and this album with the world. For many of you who helped support this project, we are so grateful. Thank you!
Our debut, self-titled album is currently available as a CD or digital download through:
1. Our website
2. Earthwork music
The 12 song album is divided into three 4 song movements, “The Light Awakes,” “From the Darkness,” and “Over the Horizon.” To be a human is to live in a world of fear, grief, injustice, and disillusionment. This album & the project more broadly, is our creative expression of exploring what we can do in the midst of those spaces. How do we learn & grow in those challenging times, and strive to be sources of love, hope, passion & vision? The weather inevitably comes at us every day...how do we choose to live amidst the unpredictability of the storms & the sunny skies?
For more of the story behind the album visit the Earthwork Music blog feature on the release.

Community supported music!
Many thanks for being a part of our community. We are here, celebrating the release of our album, largely due to the incredible support from our friends, family, and supporters. We are so grateful for that support, and humbly ask that you continue to nurture & encourage this music and this project. We are actively looking for the following and would welcome any leads, contacts, or recommendations. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Venues: we are excited to take this music into communities near & far who are looking for soulful, heartfelt music. Listening rooms, festivals, universities, schools, clubs, churches, concert series, house concerts...we are eager to hear from you where you think this music should be heard.
- Radio: we have already received some limited radio play & are eager to seek out more radio partners. Do you have a local community radio station? A local NPR affiliate that showcases Indie music? Is your cousin a DJ for a new music podcast? Drop us a line!
- Press: Our hope for Friends with the Weather & this new album is to reach ears far beyond the small but vibrant community that has supported us so far. In order to do that, it's essential that we receive some album reviews and press that highlights what this music and band is about. Do you have press contacts in your local paper or entertainment magazines? National or regional magazines? Music blogs? Radio journalists? TV contacts? We would love to hear any suggestions on ways to help spread the word.
And, again, THANKS! We hope you enjoy the new music and look forward to seeing many of you at a show in the weeks and months to come.
Chris Good, Seth Hendricks, and David Hupp
