Working With Nick Bramlett

"When the three of us get together, there's musical magic in the air!"

Working with vocalist Nick Bramlett is always such a pleasure. He's a powerhouse of a performer who always sings with so much passion. He takes his craft very seriously. There are so many things we love about his vocal styling; including the subtle nuances he pours into his performances that add up in a big way.

For those of you who did not know, Nick is a Virgo and like all Virgo's he is a bit of a perfectionist. Sidenote: Both Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury were Virgos as well. 

We know we can always count on Nick to take our songs to the next level and breathe life into them.

Breakthrough! (Album Update)

Many people have asked us when our forthcoming album, Breakthrough, will be ready? 

We wanted to report to you that we are halfway through the recording process. Like our prior albums (e.g. Second Sight, Powers Activate) we will continue the tradition of releasing our songs first as singles until we have enough material to comprise a full album. 

So far, the six songs that will be included on our fifth studio album, Breakthrough, are as follows:

Baby Blue (ft. Nick Bramlett) 
Dismissed (ft. Christina Siravo)
Graphic Equalizer
A Touch Too Much (ft. Nick Bramlett)
All the Will in the World (ft. Christina Siravo)
I Live 4 U (ft. Nick Bramlett)

For Hoyt and I, it's always been about the musical journey that we are on. We expect to hit the finish line by early 2024. For those of you that prefer to own a physical product, we will be pressing the album to the compact disc format. As an indie DIY band, we always go with the natural flow of the musical universe. 

So in conclusion, we are getting closer with every new single release. 

Sincerely, Carly
