Christmastime is here! It always amazes us how everything feels different this time of year, even if it’s feeling the expectation that you should be feeling something different. I don’t know if it’s a conditioned emotion or my upbringing, but either way, we do love the authentic heart and meaning of Christmas. (not all the “Black Friday Stampede” merchandising mentality!!) This season is special. You have a free pass to say all the cheesy stuff you never get a chance to say, right now! So go and tell everyone you love what you haven’t yet said.
Steven and I wanted to do something special for you this Christmas, so we got together and recorded Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmastime Is Here” from Charlie Brown’s Christmas. This is probably our favorite christmas song ever. Love and Peace to everyone!
Tim and Steven

We stumbled upon a new song while trying to record one of the demo’s we took into the studio. In this video Nicolas (our producer) is trying out one of his ideas for the bass. In the background you can hear a little snippet of what it sounded like at the beginning as we were writing. It’s called Sinking Ships and it’s almost finished now…
Below are 3 new songs (to be released our new album) that were recorded live in Birmingham AL in the back of our van, which we have sold (along with all of our other things including our house) to get to Germany and record a new album. These are the “Van Videos”.
Next week at 8pm Wednesday December 8th we are releasing a new song called “We Can Make It”. It will be FREE!
Steven and I wrote this song when we were at the end and beginning of a lot of things. While I was writing the lyrics, Steven was recording a perfectly amazing guitar solo that I can’t wait for you to hear. The mic was about 10 feet from his amp, because we hadn’t set it up yet, but what he played sounded so good we kept it. Then for the end of the song we both gathered around the same mic to record the vocal harmonies live. It was a warm family feeling and that must be why it came out sounding like a song that should be released at Christmas time. This is the time of year when we all get the chance to come together and start over.
