is probably somewhere right now working for the man. Why? To pay for all this damn paint. Not being gifted with deep pockets really requires you to get creative, especially when your art is taller than you. Molly paints her “Trees� series on $8 paneling and strictly with acrylic paints., and as you can see she gets some pretty amazing results. 11

Letter To Fans Artistic Philosophy We aim for musical transcendence through lovingly crafted and

detailed compositions that remain accessable, intriguing and inspiring. The love and energy of our live performance is an addiction. The greatest compliment we ever received was that someone was inspired by our album to start creating music of their own.

Sounds Like Childhood Wanderlust

Educate yourself to make an informed choice about what you want to do with your life. Stereotypes exist only because of those who choose to believe in them. Know what you want instead of merely wanting what you know. The paths that others lay before you have been walked a million times. Make

your own way. Stand up and live the life that you deserve. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that everything has been done before. Even a casual glance at history will easily reveal the flaw in their logic. Move your body. Have no fear. You

know how to save the world. Don’t wait to be told what to do. Live like you mean it. You know the truth. You are free. No one can guide you through life. You must take the reigns for yourself. If you’d like, we could provide the background music.


Performance History Over 160 shows since April 2004 covering Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri & Arkansas. We’ve shared the stage with such notable performers as: The Flaming Lips (at Dfest 2007 in Tulsa & at the Ghouls Gone Wild parade in Oklahoma City) Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey Apollo Sunshine Colourmusic Fatback Circus Nina Nastasia Kunek Black Tie Dynasty Spoonfed Tribe Student Film The Evangelicals AM Syndicate
