Happy New Year, friends! We are excited to ring in the new year with our new album "Pomegranate." We poured all our artistic love into this album. And now, for your enjoyment, an interview with the band:
Imaginary Interviewer: What was the best part of making this album?
Lauren: It was a creative outlet for our melancholy introvert parts.
Emily: It felt genuine and collaborative and like little pieces of each of us were truly woven into it.
Julie: This album was like watching my diary come to life in a music studio. That was pretty great, but also scary.
Lauren: ...and the snacks
Emily and Julie [simultaneously]: Yes!
Julie: Jinx, you owe me a Coke!
Emily: You don't drink soda.
Imaginary Interviewer: Hey, can I have a name other than "Imanginary Interviewer"?
Julie: Ok, how about.... Georgette?
Emily: Yea, you seem like a Georgette
Lauren: Yea, kinda classic, but could be making a comeback.
Georgette: Thank you, Silverton, you are rad. I will enjoy going through life as Georgette.
Silverton: [high fives all around]
Huge thank you to Eva Wo for some amazing band pics! If we have band pics, does that mean we are professionals? And therefore, does that mean we can quit our day jobs?
We had an awesome time playing for a packed crowd at the Mt. Airy Art Garage for Int'l Women's Day. Second best holiday! First is ice cream for breakfast day, obviously.
So honored to be included in the Deli's Best of Philly Poll!

Thank you fans, we love you!
One of the best days in a Philly-person's life is the annual Fun-a-Day show. The walls of Studio 34 turn into an inspiring art show, as everyday people display something they have done each day during the month of January....just for fun! The beauty of these projects is that there is nothing to be gained, no goal...just the pure creative creativity of good ol' creative creativeness. What will YOUR project be?
Here's a cool article about a guy who made a piece of music for sleeping. The musicians have to play for all 8 hours (!) while the audience goes to sleep in beds. '
The band-audience interaction is really a never ending loop of energy. We hope that our music reaches you as you are watching/listening, and in turn we gain so much energy from our audience. And every now and then someone reaches out with a nice quote a some photos. :)
Thanks to Dave Magazzukii, who saw us at the Clark Park After Party. Dave was inspired by experimenting with lighting and took some rad band pics (see above).
"Great sound as well as great chemistry!" -Dave
What an amazing day at the Philadelphia Folk Festival! We started the morning playing on a bike-powered stage! Thank you to the pedalers who kept our sound working!
Later in the day Julie Beth was honored to share a stage with Andrea Nardello and the illustrious Irish Mythen. The 3 performers shared words and music about what it's like to be "women who love women who write music."
Feeling grateful for bandmates, Philly Musicians' Co-op, and food carts.
