We have been busy recording a new album and releasing a few new music videos including a live off the floor video of our original song called "Revenge" and a fully animated video of our original "Devils Dance" which you can check out below.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ve had the absolute pleasure to be playing music with a fine piano trio this year comprised of Dave Bridger on Upright Bass and Grant King on Piano.
