Masterful at containing the true dynamic nature of emotions. At once, sad and joyful, yearning and fulfilled. Which element stands out strongest depends on your mood. This is beautiful, masterfully crafted, skillfully performed music..” Hey Reverb

Staci Foster, Tobias Bank (Von Stomper), and Alysia Kraft (Patti Fiasco) are on the same wavelength of intentionality. Catharsis is the point of the songs but the tools to get there vary. With Bank on drums, Foster swapping between guitar, harmonica, and banjo, and Kraft playing electric guitar, they’re in their element with raw, harmony-driven, stripped-down performances that nod to icons Neil Young and Lucinda Williams. There is spirituality in the country backdrops they write from and a deep reverence for the landscapes that raised them.

Recorded at GPM Studio in Fort Collins and co-produced by Tallgrass, their debut album contains six- stick-to-heart tracks that earned them 2016 nominations for Wyoming Public Radio and the Colorado Playlists’ Best Albums of the Year. Culture Trip named them to the female edition of 50 Musicians You Need to Know from Each State. In their first year as a band, they’ve shared stages with Lydia Loveless, Colin Hay, Gil Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), and will Share a stage with Big Thief this spring.
